Before the rains came (hoping, hoping…)

plumbago auriculata (i think).

I took this shot of the plumbago out back before the rain that’s in the forecast (yay!) gets here.  It’s an amazing plant; can withstand pretty much any drought and heat.  This one is sprawled over half of my flower bed.  So pretty.

There’s another coldfront coming in from the north tonight.  I can hear thunder already.  I hope this one is a super-soaker.  Today the marina was planning on moving our dock to the end of another dock, since the lake level continues to drop and it’s now too shallow where E-dock currently is.

C’mon rain!

Hoping for a gully-washer!

Pretty blue flowers

I have work-work to do today, so Monte’s gone to the lake by himself.     For a change of scenery, every now and then I need to get up and take a walk outside.

This is a shot of some blue plumbago that I planted a year or two ago.   I like plumbago because of the pretty blue color, and how it contrasts with the orange flowers that are nearby.

Also, it’s pretty much indestructible in the Central Texas heat.
