Speechful Sunday: A Possible Prince Hiding in the Succulents?

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants

“It wasn't a kiss that changed the frog, but the fact that a young girl looked beneath warts and slime and believed she saw a prince. So he became one.”
Richelle E. Goodrich
American Author & Novelist

 

When I (A) took this photo, I was contorted  around a column and focused on getting a picture of the mostly red succulent in the upper right hand corner...I wanted to find one like it among the selection at Woeste's.

 

And no, they did not have another one. I also did not notice the other succulents nor the frog in the arrangement until we got home and I looked at my picture.  Anybody see the prince?

 

Enjoy your Sunday, and we wish you a great week ahead!

Ron & Alexandra

Barbara Todaro one of the reasons we are there everytime, we enjoy the owner's creativity, and all their tongue-in-cheek stuff.  It is a smile worthy place. A

Nina Hollander it was fun discovering the frog after the fact, what I was aiming it was purely utilitarian.  And it ended up having some artistic merit.  A

Michael Jacobs Interesting how sometimes the truth gets revealed even though it has been right under one's nose all along...It is a good feeling nevertheless.  A

Hi Ron and Alexandra Seigel - A, that is why you didn't see the frog.  You saw what it could become - a prince.

Hi Ron and Alexandra- I can appreciate the angle you had to go to for that shot. If we keep our minds and hearts open, we'll come across many princes and princesses.

Amazing shot, A.  Now if Ron had got a shot of you 'contorted around the column', hey. that would have been as perfect as the excellent shot of the frog.

I do see the Prince-in-waiting, and he appears to be posed and waiting for a magical kiss.
