I adore Maxfield Parrish, more than anything I love his skies. Every now and then we have a morning here where the colors of the clouds and the skies mimic a Parrish painting, this morning was such a day.
The colors obviously didn’t translate into the electronic world, just trust me, it was lovely.
Last night we had a powerful storm, no “tomatoes”, but some serious downbursts, hail and heavy rain. In other words, absolutely lovely. Except that some branches came down in our yard and a tree crushed a car down the street. Below is a picture of the biggest branch to come down in our yard – when I took the picture there was a male cardinal sitting on the end. Though, do birds sit? I suppose it was standing there. Birds either lay there, stand or fly. The picture is kinda out of focus, sorry.
I just like these flowers. It’s a double purple petunia and a very pretty sherbet lantana.
And now, the heliotrope. I adore this plant, I love the smell which is a kind of musky vanilla, and the color. There are white ones, but I didn’t manage to get any in time to plant them this year. Perhaps next.
Finally, a greeting from The Jujubee:
