Bambi and Peter (Cottontail) are both grazing peacefully in the back yard as I type this. Plenty of apples and clover for everyone!
My washer is not one of the miracles. Still not working. I called for service and someone will be out - but not until next Thursday! Luckily we have sufficient underwear and other clothes to last us for an even longer period of time...hopefully it will not come to that.
Our little wren babies have finally fledged! I watched one of them leave the nest - so cool! Our afternoons on the patio are much quieter now - no chattering wren babies and no parents flying in with food.
Now for the miracles!! Our winds the other night knocked over a few things in the garden. When Fletch went out to make sure everything was ok, he noticed figs beginning to form on our fig tree! Woo-Hoo!
If you click to enlarge, you will see the figs forming along the stem/trunk. We had been worried because Figgy (the tree) is about half the size it is normally by now. I'm so happy we will at least have some fruit.
The other plant that was knocked over was our hibiscus. Fletch had counted 15 (15!!!) buds on it the day before the storm. He had to stake the plant up, but look what appeared the next day:
What a deep, rich color! As of yesterday a second bloom was fully open and a third partially open. The plant is a wonder...yes, a miracle, this year.
OK, that's it for me today. I'm late getting started and I have all of my usual Thursday reports to run and distribute. Wishing you all a wonderful Thursday - enjoy!!
