After the Storm
Ugh! We had a big storm yesterday. It hit around noon and I really shouldn't complain, we didn't get any major damage.
Just lots of debris that I have to get my hiney out there and pick up. In all honesty, I should have pulled those dead palm fronds down before, but I was being lazy as I didn't want to drag out the ladder.
There's no getting out of maintenance work and I know that.
I don't even want to show you the rest of the yard, it's full of downed branches and flattened plants. Sigh...and we might get a repeat performance tonight.
But as I stood looking out at the messy yard, I did notice a few spots of beauty. The sun hitting this Ti plant and glowing such an intense color of pink. Highlighted against the different colors of green in the background.
And this bougainvillea being lit up by the afternoon sun.
I'm grateful we didn't have houses blown down, roofs torn off and cars turned upside down. Not far from here people are still suffering from a storm earlier this week and hadn't even got their roofs repaired before being hit by this one. Our thoughts and prayers are with them.
Truly, I'm feeling very blessed.
