Substitutes for Conversation Hearts

 

The iconic Necco conversation hearts are no longer made.😢

My sister sent out the Brach’s version to the grandkids.  I tasted one and spit it out in the trash but I will say she warned me prior to my putting it in my mouth.

Missing the chalky taste and flavors of the original.

 

But they looked festive so I photographed them along with the cinnamon hearts she mailed.

Happy Valentine’s Day

Wildflower Mural House On Route A1A

As you get gas at the BP station on Route A1A, you can see the colorful Wildflower mural that artist Steven Teller has been painting on this house, which is his studio. There’s an article in the St Augustine Record about his artwork… “displayed Mexican petunias, dune daisies and Gaillardia blanket flowers. He said he noticed that wildflowers became more abundant in Vilano Beach after two hurricanes (Irma,Matthew) rocked the area and spread seeds.”  

Getting gas at night is the second photo.  Glad our hostess Joanne drove by in the daylight so we could photograph the mural again, not just in the car headlights.
