Amber & It Was A Dark and Stormy Night....

How to make a dark and stormy* by Nick.

1. Have friends that go to Bermuda.

2. Ensure those friends are generous and kind enough to bring you back Gosling's Black Seal Rum.

3.  Make drink. Gaze upon your success with surprise and anticipation.

3.  Sip.

4.  Sip again.

5.  Let others know to stop photo documenting and start enjoying their beverage.

6.  Ask Diana to identify this flower in keeping with the theme of the week's blogging.

I call that one "fuzzy pink guys in clusters."

*The official ALH Beverage of 2012, as suggested by Erl.

The festive flower is Japanese Spirea. I found it by googling "pink cluster flower new york" because I didn't have any idea what it was. Maybe that's because it is an invasive plant and I'm inclined to snoot on non-native species. But it sure is pretty.
