Wednesday In Tucson

So busy and so much to do before family comes for a visit.
Plus doctors for both The Square Ones and me !
And of course lots of meds.

 What a saw this morning when I woke up.
Much needed rain but this rain should be in the afternoon not the morning.
The monsoon is very messed up.

 Last night rain storm

 This looks like our winter rains
What is going on ?
.
 Last photos of my Century Plant
before it is chopped down.

 I would have waited but the Mother plant is dying out 
and leaning toward the house.

    1. I had two Century Plants in the back that were living sculptures.
      They are both gone now but that was on of the things I liked about the back yard.

    1. In winter it doesn't matter but when you know the the monsoons and they start doing weird things.
      Usually the clouds build up during the day then about 3 or 5 the storms come.
      Every few day then a few storm free days then rain again. But now all bets are off.
      Just as long as we get some rain we need it.

  5. I'd be angry if I was a parsnip in a bag, too.

    Your view is spectacular. We're looking for a house now and I keep mentioning that to my husband. I'm all about downsizing - as far down as I can go, in fact. But that would be much more pleasant with a view. On the right ridge, you can see a beautiful valley and the Smokies in the distance. I'm holding out....

  6. I hope your son is enjoying his trip to New Zealand, is he in Dunedin?
    Love your photos, especially the top one. And your century plant has done so well, it's a shame it's started leaning in to the house.

  7. Our rains are messed up in Florida, too. We're being dumpd on all day everyday. We're flooding in parts. I've been watching the lake behind my house. Its rising and half in the backyard.

    Hugs and chocolate to you and the boys!

  8. For some strange reason, I enjoy being awaken at night by a storm. Maybe it's good knowing it'll be gone in the morning and I won't have to go out in it.

    1. I don't mind it raining anytime, because of our dependency of our 2 small rainy seasons.
      But in the hot summer it is important to watch the sky, thunderheads building up, listen for the thunder and watch for lighting.
      So you can figure out if you can swim. The lighting strikes can travel great distances from where it is raining.
