“A wise old owl lived in an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard...
Why can't we all be like that bird?”

A Blossom Fell...

Butterfly bush blossoms - one lone blossom falling to the ground as I clicked the shutter.
Blucher Park, downtown Corpus Christi.

MONDAY MORSELS

Tropical Storm Debby, if you haven't heard, is out there in the Gulf. At first, after it left the Yucatan Peninsula, it was predicted to go more westerly to finally hit the Texas Gulf Coast...in fact, a direct 'hit' onto Corpus Christi - by that time a full-fledged hurricane. All the time I was watching it way back when it was just a 1% chance of becoming a tropical storm, I had predicted 'touchdown' on the Florida Panhandle. Then, yesterday, the path changed; heading into Louisiana/Mobile Alabama area....this morning, the direction has changed. It will remain a tropical storm and quickly become a depression ---on the Florida Panhandle!!! Mark this one up on me. Sorry Floridians. :o)

  2. What a great catch with that little blossom falling! Glad you were spared the hurricane...it is that time of the year. My mom is in central Florida (I am headed there in 2 weeks), and they desperately need rain where she is, but the hurricanes are a bad way to get the rain! Glad to see you back...

  4. Well, congratulations on that call, Anni. My sister is in the Tampa area, and I've been worried about her in a mobile home with tornadoes all around! She seemed to escape this one.

    1. Oh I would be too....mobile homes are NOT good during any kind of storm.

  10. There was one model showing it crossing FLA and coming into the Atlantic---and I said, "NO! Don't you dare!" LOL I hate these things. Especially the more unpredictable ones. Strange how she's stalled out there like that.

    1. It has a lot to do with the pressure areas...high pressure vs. low pressure.

  13. You're better at weather prediction that TWC usually is! I love, love, love that photo. What a great catch to have one flower falling!

    1. Thanks Nani...but just a wild guess on the storm's path. Texas usually doesn't get bad storms 'til late August through November. Now mind you, I said USUALLY.

  14. I love your butterfly bush...ironically I had one that very color about 4' in diameter...but alas Hurricane Fran
    In the late 90's turned the bush into splinters.

    Hugs

  15. Take 2... Great shot. Hurricane Fran turned our huge butterfly bush into splinters in the late 90s. Crazy hurricane
    Travel 150 miles inland to get to us

  17. Darn, I was hoping for some rain from Debby. It will be 3 weeks tomorrow since we had any and it is so dry. I know you hear where I'm coming from. I was so happy to hear about your micro bursts, I knew you all needed it. My DIL says it rained more on their vacation in Mickey's village than in 4 years they lived in Texas. Its very hot but the humidity has been falling in the afternoon, late, and there's a breeze blowing.
    Blessings,
