Thank you to Della for paying more attention to the weather than me...
THIS is Tropical Storm Isaac setting up a cooler and lawn chair in my back yard.
I dated Ivan a couple of years ago.
I'm just so bad with names.
This bloom is nearly 2 feet in length.
And I have over a dozen of these plants in full glory.
The hot pink of a bougainvillea is actually just leaves.
That tiny speck of white is the flower.
Even our weeds are lush and bright.
It's sometimes hard to pull them.
I'm going to admit something a little strange:
this fruit tree is 12 feet tall.
And I just noticed it.
That can happen in the back corner of my jungle.
If I ever find a car I didn't know I had,
I'm not about to tell you.
