Good morning. Today is quite lovely here. Lots of sunshine and 60F degrees. Later, temps will get up into the mid seventies. Perfect! Last night's rain came and left a few little wet drops on my car's windshield. I doubt if any of those droplets even hit the ground.
First, let me wish my great grandson, Nick, a Very Happy Birthday. Yesterday he turned eleven years old and started his first day in the sixth grade. Nick, I hope your day was awesome. Meema loves you. This is Nick, and he looks super happy to be back in school.
I received an email and some photos from a reader who has been travelling around Australia. The photos are of the Green Bird Flower, (Hummingbird Plant) which grows in the remote areas and red sands of Western Australia. (and other areas) These are awesome photos. Thank you so much Eileen for sharing these with us. Let me know how you make out trying to grow the plants from seed.
I just switched over to the Weather Channel (on TV) only to find that Hurricane Dorian has re-intensified (Cat 3) and is causing all sorts of grief on the Carolinas. This also means huge amounts of rain in Southeastern Virginia. That's where my daughter Audrey is. Hopefully, everyone in the coastal areas of the Carolinas have already evacuated.
Already, more than two hundred thousand folks have lost electrical power, and several areas in both North and South Carolina are issuing tornado warnings. (Tornados have already been reported to have touched down) This is one nasty storm! I'd like to see it turn and head back out to sea, but it doesn't look like that's going to be happening anytime soon.
Ever had crispy fried eggs? It's what happens when you are paying too much attention to the Weather News and not enough attention to the eggs you are frying. I'll tell you, they don't taste too bad, although I don't recommend having them every day.
Now I'm off to do a bit of blog reading. So, till tomorrow, Y'all stay safe and have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
