We had clouds early on here, but I did get a couple of shots late in the evening, not dramatically close but beautiful just the same.
|You might have to turn out all of the lights and look at this in the dark |
to see what I saw (a light and color show), as I don't own the Hubble telescope to shoot with. Drat.
Before the sun went away, I was pretty happy to see that the sea almonds and papayas, after dramatically shedding their leaves are making an immediate reshowing, unlike their Northern cousins who take months to get dressed again. I planted these trees ten years ago to give the yard some shade and they have done admirably well, until the once a year shedding which leaves (pun unintended) the yard bright, way too bright. In a week or so, just in time as the days get warmer, shade will once more cover my world.
|Sadly, my biggest papaya was so beaten up with our days and days of gale force winds that it just fell over. Now this one is the biggest and I thought, until a couple of days ago, that it too was a goner. Happily, not.|
