After the Rain

The hot wind blew fast and furiously through the ponytail palms last night,
stretching their slender fronds toward the east.
Weather casters were giddy with the news:
 A cold front will sweep away our warm, humid days and bring in
 autumn temperatures!!!

By Saturday, we'll go from a high of 88 Farenheit to a high of 80 for the weekend
 (three degrees below average).
The garden is singing this morning after another deep rain.


Elephant ears gratefully cradle the raindrops...


...and the Purple Shield is positively perky!

Even in tropical south Florida a cooling trend is a welcome change.

That is wonderful news, Becky! I'm hoping it will reach to the Orlando area where 2 of my sisters live. Your photos are beautiful!

More wonderful news, Becky is that Tammy on The Peanut On the Table posted today! Hurrah! She will get better, Becky. I have much faith that she will.

At least it bring the colours forth - and a bit of rain is not too bad? :-)

Cooler weather on the way sounds like good news for you. The vivid colours of nature must inspire your design work. Hope the quilting day went well!

It's 20 degrees here, unheard of before in late October. We always think that Autumn is going to arrive but really, we cannot feel it yet!

I love it when the temperature drops ... always. Your garden is so beautiful. Are you feeling settled for the winter?

Fondly,
