Tropical Storm Alberto is kicking up his breezy heels in the front yard today. There's an archery tournament this weekend across the road, (the outdoor range is in the woods, so it cuts down the wind some) and Hubby is stuck in his shop. He called the house to tell me about a "Photo Op" in the front yard: a flock of white cowbirds. The wind had them on the move, hopping up and down, or scurrying around like Chicken Little thinking the sky was falling.
And although I didn't really travel anywhere but AWAY from work on my vacation, I did purchase a little bit of Island Charm...and pretended I could hear the ocean and smell salty air.
I've never seen a Hibiscus with a "braided trunk" but she's bloomed one lovely red flower every other day for 2 weeks now.
An all American Sunday in the Country. Hopefully that Field of Weeds will soon become a crop of something other than Ragweed, Goldenrod and Dog Fennel!
The porch also has just a hint of Mexico in the lovely Portulaca in our hanging, make that SWINGING, baskets.
Not exactly your usual early warning system for weather, but this is a big and heavy wind chime....which has been standing sideways for half the morning.
