Into the Sunrise

I almost hated to see the freezing temperatures down in the mid 20's as everything that has grown since spring is dead. I had a wonderful success with my Butterfly garden and am looking forward to doing it all over again next year.

Thank Goodness For Hawks

For those of you that was wishing for colder weather, you got your wish. My bird bath was frozen over and I will have to get me a de-icer to keep fresh water available during the winter. Birds are like us humans and need fresh water to survive.

Cold Weather a Coming

There was frost upon the pumpkin this morning and I was happy that I didn't have to get out that early. I will hope that I can hit the Powerball so I can move to Daytona Beach Florida. Just a dream, maybe.

A cool brisk morning was just what the Doctor ordered. With Daylight Saving Time over with, we can expect the nighttime to get here maybe before 5 0'Clock in the evening. Cold weather is definitely not my cup of tea.

Where has Fall gone to, or maybe why is Summer hanging on so long? Is this some proof that "Global Warming" is true? El Nino? I'm not sure, but I am going to enjoy warm weather while it's here.

Keeping glued to the Weather Channel, we have made plans to flee the east coast of Florida if necessary. This will throw a wrench into the plans that I was looking forward to. This will be the second time this year that a hurricane has wrecked my vacation. The first came when Hurricane Hermine came into existence down in the Gulf of Mexico.

Autumn is Here, Finally

It looks like Summer is fixing to turn loose and let Fall take it's place. Fall is a great time of the year, but my most favorite is Spring, because of the new flowers that bloom. You can keep Winter.

As most of you figured out, I had taken a two week vacation, first down in New Orleans and then onboard a ship headed out into the Gulf of Mexico. The weather in new Orleans was about the same that we had been having here. Lots of heat and humidity to go around.

We seem to have caught a slight break this weekend with the weather. Saturday morning was a whole lot less in the humidity department. Of course the rains returned Sunday and we are back to where we were before, sticky.

Well, the weather is still a bit on the warm side, but the storms seem to be going some where else. Now we are needing some rain. My Texas sunflowers are really starting to bloom and seem to be showing off their "Tennessee Orange."

Another hot week like the week before and the week before that. I am hoping for some decent weather in a couple of weeks so I can have a yard sale. It is easy to accumulate a bunch of stuff that you really don't need. Time to clean house.

To The Lake And Back

Time is slowly counting down to a vacation of a life time where just maybe, I can stick my toes in the sand. But before I go, there are many things that need to be done here at home. My flower garden looks very good, but there is plenty weeds that needs to be pulled.

Cicadas, Are They Back?

This hot and humid weather makes me look forward to fall, with it's milder temperatures where one might just be able to open a window for some fresh air. The rain this week has been avoiding my little yard and it is getting time to drag out the "hosepipe", well that is what most of us southerners call it.

We had another carbon copy week just like the last one with heat, then thunderstorms in the afternoon. I am sure the lawn mowing people are almost working overtime to catch up.

I am not sure how many storms have happened this past week, but everywhere I look, I see tree damage. When I went to Publix this past Thursday, there were blue skies with a few big clouds up above. After about ten minutes inside, when we were ready to leave, it was raining cats and dogs.

I am not sure how the weather will go for next week as I am writing my story a week early. This weekend we will be staying at one of the cabins at the Cedars of Lebanon State Park. I plan on just taking it easy and maybe a trip over to the swimming pool to cool off. Please, no Shamu jokes

I believe Summer has arrived a few days earlier than my calendar said it would. Flowers are looking great and I finally planted me three hills of watermelons. It may be late, but I did the same thing last year and still got to enjoy the sweet treat, though a little later in the year.

Where Did Spring Go?

Someone left the heater on this past Saturday. Where did all of the comfortable temps go to. We do need rain for our plants. I am having to drag out the hosepipe to give my flowers a cool refreshing drink. This is also a good time to make sure our feathered friends have fresh water.

Diana Bright and I headed west to visit her first great grandson in Savanah Tennessee last Friday. There is no direct route in that direction and it seemed to take all day. On the way back, it came a frog strangler, heavy rain for the ones not fluent in deep southern.
