Happy New Year! This crazy hibiscus celebrated the day by blooming. It has been sitting in a dark hallway for weeks. If you notice the yellow leaves, I have not been watering it all that much. I guess she is just happy to be inside.
|A diary I have carried around for years.|
|Had one of those days when nothing you do on Blogger goes well? I have no idea why this photo insists on loading upside down. I even saved it upside down and loaded it. Still the same. Sigh.|
|This photo is ok. Go figure.|
|January 3rd - Cold winter mornings have provided beautiful sunrise photos.|
|January 9th - We have been receiving some rain lately. Think I have a new project to tackle.|
|Which will include fixing this pathway.|
|My sweetie and I cleaned the lot next door and planted wildflower seed just before the rains came.|
My current project is to create a bit of a rain garden. I stretched out a garden hose to get a bit of flow.
I scratched out a bit of the rubble. I need a pick axe as there is so much construction debris in this soil.
Last Sunday (22nd) we had a dust storm blow through town. My view of Fort Worth on my way home after work. Yes, I took this photo while I was driving - see the stop light? It is 5:23 p.m. and the sun looks like it is lost in a fog.
The dust storm could be seen on the weather radar.
|It is 4:35 am - that's when my sweetie gets up in the morning. I love this app - Sky12. The yellow circle on the left denotes seismic activity/earthquake.|
|Hard to tell the golf course from the water hazards and nearby creek. All the water receded within a day.|
|Our local lakes have gone from double digit deficits to surplus from rains this month. Happy dance.|
Only lost a little bit more mulch due to the heavy rains. This area should be good for now. It looks like my tentative carvings in the ground will follow the water flow.
