There wasn't much to it after all. It got down graded to a tropical storm. We had high winds and rain but nothing that we haven't seen before. Much ado about nothing! It's a beautiful sunny day here at the moment. The boys after a night out in the storm.
The plant that I accidentally put bleach on has a flower. Although in the photo the flower looks big, it's very tiny. The plant has succulent like leaves.
This is a perennial that blooms this time of year. I've grown them for years and still I'm unsure of the proper name. People here call them Sunflowers and maybe they are right. I'd like to know for sure though, so if anyone knows please let me know.
This is another colour of Bee Balm that I have growing.
These are some of the red ones. There's quite a difference in the colour.
This bird is no fool. She's found she can get the seeds much easier by going through the hole the squirrel made in the top of the feeder.
A few more bird pictures.
My parents are coming on Friday for the weekend and I have so much to do this week. I have to finish wrapping their Christmas presents. I figured I might as well let them take them back. I usually give them money, after all they have everything they want but I also do up a large package for each of them as well filled with all kinds of fun and foolish presents. Then I have to make Black Currant Jam. I hate picking berries but this year the currant bush was so laden down with berries that I felt guilty about not picking them, hence the jam making. I have to get all the house plants watered. The guest room that I now have full of craft stuff, etc. and herbs hung around the walls drying.....well, I now have to find other spots for all of this until the parents leave. I want to make a coffee cake. Then there's the weeding outside. I've let it go for to long and I can see hours of work ahead of me. I want to get all of this done by Friday and am now starting to feel a little bit panicky.
