Jericho Wanders Aimlessly
Hi everyone and welcome to an open blog.
Irene passed us by, but brought an evening of pretty clouds. Ss usual, the camera simply can't do justice to the colors and the depth overhead.
We were hopeful that the passing waves would bring some treasures to the coastline; maybe some bigger shells, maybe some fossils, but little was to be found. Ended up with over a hundred shark teeth though, and some small bits of colorful seaglass.
Dau went with us to the beach, and enjoyed a lazy day in the tidal pools. The tide came in quickly as it turned, and in less than twenty minutes, it was nearly up to her neck.
She also found many living starfish, and tossed them gently back into the waves.
A week or two of peaceful weather lent well to the little flora and fauna in the garden. Usually, I can't catch the butterflies on camera, but this one seemed to beg me. These are for Proserpina.
Finally, a butterfly pic that I am not embarrassed to post. Mom, for you.
With a free weekend from work, and a need to renew the garden beds. I found a place to get some Post-Equine Garden Enhancement. We brought home eighteen, fifty pound bags. That's nearly half a ton! But instead of pics of the PEGE, like last year, I decided to get pics of the equines themselves.
This is Coffee, she is 24 years old, and her owner has had her since the age of six months.
And out in the pasture, the horses were happy and curious.
Inside the barn.
After tearing up the garden and pulling dead plants and tilling in the PEGE, not much was left. But the watermelons are growing- Hey! I got nice melons! I don't even LIKE watermelons, but I'm going to try these.
And on a most recent note- last night (Friday, 9-16), we received 8.10 inches of rain in about six hours. I do believe that's a record, but not sure. Definitely a memorable record for me, as I ended up driving through it. Next morning, I checked the CoCoRahs rain gauge. They only hold eleven inches- we came real close. Anyone need a rain gauge?
I hope ya'll enjoyed the pics. Not nearly as much time to be here as I'd like, so I hope ya'll will forgive if the posts do not get answered promptly. They WILL get answered, I promise.
