Let's talk about the weather




I can't find the words to talk about things today. (As for my family, no facts to share, just going back and forth between hope and fear.)

Looking at my pictures from this weekend (I was trying to do a day-in-the-life, but got sidetracked after a few hours) I thought these three made a nice combination to share.
Well, to be honest, I was going to get all philosophical about them, but I think I really want to talk about the weather a bit. You know, since it's a nice and neutral topic. There's already too much fear, anger, and sadness on the internet these days. There are also a lot of people trying to turn that around, but I don't think I can add much to that.
Okay, there's one thing I want to say: Let's all try to be kind to other people, even if they do or say things we don't approve of; they are scared too. This world needs love and kindness, not hate and anger.

Anyway, about the weather... Lately, it's been raining each morning, but that's actually a good thing. I planted a banana tree and I was prepared to haul buckets of water around the first few weeks, but now I don't need to. Rainbows are always a nice bonus, and we still get (normal) sunny and hot weather in the afternoon. It's not the right season to plant vegetables (summer is way too dry and hot), but I hope I can at least get some things going if this continues.

Wishing you all a very good week. Stay healthy (or get better) and carry on.
This too will pass...

    1. Thank you! A banana tree was high on my list. And we don't even really like bananas...

    1. How fun if it was still there... She is sort of stable, but not better yet. We'll have to wait it out. Hope you feel better.

  3. I am keeping my fingers crossed for your banana tree! (that is so cool that you can grow it in your yard, seriously. I know it's ridiculous, but it still fascinates me that people can have their own bananas (or citrus fruits) in their backyard.

    1. Yes, isn't it great? I already have papaya' and coconut palms growing. Next on the list is a lime tree and maybe an orange tree, though I maybe overstepping myself in the watering department now. Maybe wait until we can have a deepwell. But yes, it's so cool to grow bananas.

  4. Beautiful photos. I would much rather be there than stuck here in gray Indiana now that our Governor has turned tail and is forcing stay home guidelines. We have only had 259 cases in 17 days. None of our hospitals are overrun with cases. Unfortunately 7 deaths, but we really are not dripping with severe cases.

    1. I do feel privileged and blessed to be stuck at home right here. Hope your weather will be better soon, that will make it easier.
