the rain train...


kept on chugging last night
it was our turn to get swamped
to the north of us it came down
to the east of us it bucketed
to the south thunderstorms blew up and it all came over us
at one point or another




this was after I posted yesterday
it just got deeper and deeper


and foggier and foggier
a tree fell in the woods across the street at one point
will have to go and check it out
and yes it did make a sound even though no one saw it fall
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
they said if all this water had fallen on Texas it wouldn't have been much
more than  a 1/2"
they need more than that to solve their problem

they forecast more for us for two or three days
Katia may visit the UK in a few days
she
is going past us at this moment
out at sea with the fish





thank goodness the skylight isn't leaking!!!!
but it makes for pretty patterns on the glass




then this morning
 for a while
the sky turned a very strange
forgotten colour
it was

um...err...ooooo
yeah
blue



and the reflections on the lake were pretty enough for me
 to put my shoes on
go outside
 into the
heat and humidity
mosquito infested back garden
and
take this
there were two rather large turtles sitting on a log that made me think about going out
but
of course
as always
it never ends
they slid into the water the second they saw me
curse them



so I turned blue around and saw this fine thing
another huge magnolia seed pod
with moth attached
I think it's a moth
I wasn't going to disturb it and ask
yuk!



and you'd think that with all this rain we'd have some fine specimens of these
but noooo
not one fine one to been had
just this little fellow
all curled up and tucked in beneath his blankie
oh well
maybe later



and this wonderful thing is what the husband bought a while ago
a hummingbird feeder
that looks like a hot air balllloooonnnn
he saw it and had to have it
but I have to make the nectar and clean the thing
!


and because he is one of those who must have it all
a
little
up
side
down
brolly
filled with water
to keep the ants from
invading
 HUH!!!!

ummmm
I think the hummers have left already
too much
rain
maybe

:)
