Flowers, a Sukkah, and Artsiness

The morning of October 2nd I took Leo outside and shot some pictures.  This flower’s stalk is about 3 1/2 ft tall, so I couldn’t help noticing it.  Does anyone know what kind of flower it actually is? The leaves were very cool-looking I thought. 🙂

Then I wandered over to our sukkah, which my step-dad built to celebrate The Feast of Booths, AKA Sukkot.  If you are not familiar with the Levitical calendar God gave to the Israelites, please read Leviticus 23.
Anyway, God told us to build a temporary shelter to live in for a week during the feast, but since we live in Florida, (please refer to my post on Floridian mosquitoes) we just dined in it.  Traditionally the roof is made of palm fronds, and it was to those that my eye was attracted.  The dew had not yet evaporated, so I got some fun water droplet shots.

After I came back inside I still had my camera on so I followed the cat around, waiting for the perfect shot(s).

And later that day at the park I took this picture of Adam.

  1. Your family celebrated Sukkot!?! 😀 My family has been celebrating the biblical festivals for many years now, and it has been such a wonderful thing! Sukkot has always been my favorite of the festivals. 🙂 This year I was blessed to go to Jerusalem with some of my family for the festival. It’s so amazing to see the whole city celebrating. The restaurants have a sukkah outside for people to eat in. 🙂 Also, since there’s very limited space in Israel, most of the people build a sukkah on their narrow balconies, and only dine in them as well.

    1. I grew up in a Messianic Jewish synagogue so that’s been a main part of my life. That’s so cool that you were able to go to Jerusalem for Sukkot!! I’ve always wanted to go and see the balcony sukkahs… I’ve heard about them. 🙂
