According to an on-line dictionary, the meaning of an expresion known as "the last straw" is this: "the last of a series of annoyances or disappointments that leads one to a final loss of patience, temper, trust, or hope."
However, some of my last straw moments were "comforted" by visiting mourning doves who did enjoy my garden during the storm as evidenced by the photo-ops below.
I suppose, dear reader, that you will agree that seeing mourning doves enjoying life to the fullest is a good cure for being broken in spirit by last straw moments?
Yet, for me, another "remedy" for moments hampered by the last straw (during February of 2013) were visits by figurines to my succulent garden! They came here for the Valentine's Day "holiday" and some of them can be seen in the photo-ops below.
Moreover, these "guests" and their "friends" (some are not pictured here) were featured in a "story" on TLLG's tumblr pages, for, as you know if you follow any of my cyber-space venues, decor and ambience in my indoor succulent garden have caused what I grow to thrive, as I discussed in a guest post for My Square Foot Garden!
Even Lucifer, a frog who occasionaly visits my succulent garden, found joy (in the form of a gal pal) in my Valentine's Day guests as seen below.
