One bit of good news

Rain! Yes boys and girls, we’ve gotten two days of rain in the general area. Though it won’t immediately affect our lakes and waterways (it takes about three months for the water to filter through) it is definitely making our plants happier. Why just this morning my Aglaonema was mentioning to me how lovely she felt after her evening shower.

Seriously though, I’ve read recently that, due to a weak El Niño this summer we can expect about 14 named storms, a least two becoming major. While the thought of that doesn’t fill me with overwhelming joy, I can definitely appreciate the heavy rains associated with these storm. As long as we can request some lighter winds…

Finally, please be aware that, until we are fully into the wet season with our daily afternoon showers, we should still be careful with our water usage as well as our matches and lighters.

Now, go dance in the rain!


september’s here

sadly, a simple pic never catches the true hues

I always know when September arrives. Yea sure, I can look at the calendar (duh!) but simpler even is to look at the sky. Why? September, for whatever reason, brings sunsets that light up the sky with whatever color they decide that day. I mean as in color everything in sight: trees, pool furniture, cars, buildings, etc. Everything is cast into that hue. Then, almost immediately following, there comes a deluge; well, not always, but always some precipitation.

thanks for the much needed moisture

Well, after a weekend full of rain and tropical nastiness, Mr. Sun has deigned us worthy of seeing his face again. Good way to start the week, I suppose. I’m outside raking leaves, piling branches and overall just neatening up. I was about ready to empty the bird bath across from the front door, to prevent the unavoidable skeeters, when I found these titmouses availing themselves of it. Needless to say, it’s still full 🙂
