Well, first off a storm coming is unusual for us, the wind is blowing and rain is supposed to start tonight. The news last night had a story about how people are being advised to take down big holiday decorations, in particular those big blow up santas and such, otherwise they may blow on down the street. The spokesman for the CHP talked a bit about how if you see something blocking the road (big blow up santas for example) you should call 911 because it is an emergency. He was talking more along the lines of downed tree limbs and power lines, but I'm sure a big blow up santa will end up on some road somewhere in town.
So, while waiting for the storm and listening to the wind chimes bang around and a few trash cans blowing over, wind chimes that I will take down before nightfall and I'll also bring the trash can in, today being trash day and it's still sitting on the curb, I was working on some stuff in the front room and glanced out the window to see this.
Most of my flowers started out as those little six pack flowers with just like one bud on them and I can't believe how big they've gotten and how much they bloom. They really like where they are I guess, getting direct sun all day long. On sunny days anyway.
