I have decided to take a little break from the blog. I guess you could tell from my lack of new posts’. I have decided I will post again when my Hibiscus cannabinus blooms. It is suppose to bloom anytime between late-September through October.

This is an ornamental grass that I have had since last winter. It grew from a ver small mailorder size plant to what you see today. It started to bloom back at the end of July and is still blooming.

It is that time of year when I just can’t find a lot to talk about. I may have more in the next few days, but nothing special today. Here are two pictures of the Sun setting sometime last week. I actually perfer Sunrises, but I am not normally up for them during the summer when they are so early. Here they are:

August was a dry and hot month with a lot of humidity, it was very miserable and I am glad it is over. The enitre summer wasn’t much better with us drying out badly at the end of June, July, and August after getting rain at the begining of each month. The wet season also never seemed to arrive this year which was a bummer.
