Low humidity, temps in the 80"s. How sweet it is. My day was spent, sitting outside on the deck, gazing at the lake. Not many folks out there. It looked like a mirror. I did start to write more poetry lately. I'm thinking it's the influence of this site. Haiku and New Poems is the place I like to "hang out". It has been very inspirational. I have been writing poetry since I was a teenager. Phew.....that's a loooong time.
The gardens are looking good. Today, I did have to water. Seems rain is not in the forecast for the next few days. On my walk, down to the lake this morning, I saw a Doe with what looked like twins. What a sight. They are a beautiful animal. (But not when they're in my garden)
I also love watching my resident terrapin. It's pretty good size and has the pond all to itself. Also, the dragonflies are prevalent.
Dusk is setting in, so I had better close, if I want to get an evening walk in.
Since the 4th, we've had consistent weather..........RAIN......Ugh h
The plants are lovin' it,though. I haven't spent much time in the garden. The humidity has been so high. Today it's much lower, and much cooler. I'm still waiting for the Morning Glories to set buds. The banana trees are about 6 ft. tall, now. The Crepe Myrtle are starting to bloom. Today would be a good day to get my hands dirty. So, until next time.
The 4th of July fireworks are all over. Last night, the display at Pontiac was gorgeous. We sat out on the deck and watched. With an impending storm in the south, the display was hurried up a bit. But, all in all, it was great. The storm held off long enough for them to shoot them off. I always think of the fourth as the half way point in the tourist season. By August, the lake will be back to belonging to the "Locals". I do like that. The weather tonight is so oppressive, we won't be sitting outside. It seems, since Hubby's surgery, he really can't take the humidity when it's this high. I picked up a "Pond Book" yesterday. It seems like a good night to just stay indoors and read up on my pond. With the rains we've had, it's practically full. I did watch a young Hawk working it today. I suppose the "Frog Buffet" is what it was looking for.
The plants are all looking well. In front of the guest house, it looks like the rain forest. It's fun to sit up there and watch the reaction of passersby, when they see the Banana trees. The Elephant Ears are getting huge.
