Gray and dreary except…

When I took my walk today it was gray and dreary.
There wasn’t much traffic on the streets
and I didn’t see anyone else walking.
There weren’t even any squirrels out and about.
I saw one crow.

I was happy to come home and sit on my balcony
and enjoy my petunias.
I planted them last Spring
and they have been showing off ever since.

They are wonderful and I think they have a right to show off since they weathered the winter cold and never gave up.

That’s my Tuesday Chatter this week
and my Changing Seasons Photos for February.

My view January 2017

Looking at the sunset
I can see a snippet
Of this beautiful night vista
Only just a tiny smidgen
Of creation am I given

August on my block…

August in this part of the country has been HOT!
It started out just hot and dry.
This is what I saw on one of my walks.

I don’t know the official name of this plant,
we just call it palmetto grass.
Somehow it manages to look cool in the heat.

August didn’t stay just hot and humid.
It got HOT and HUMID.
Then the rains came making it
HOT and HUMID and WET.
This is what I saw on a walk last week.

Yep, mushrooms on lawns and under shrubs.
The weather peeps say it is going to cool down to the 90’s this week,
still humid but no rain expected until the weekend.
I am so ready for some cooler drier weather.
I mean COOL as in CHILLY
none of this cool 90’s stuff.
