Saturday Random Photos
We had a severe storm pass through this morning, and the wind gusting seemed like 60mph.
Most of my dad’s cherry blossom are on the ground.
Many trees were down in his neighborhood.
I feel bad for this person, this is the second Bradford Pear tree that’s down.
A good thing that it didn’t hit the car or house.
I used to think that it’s rare to see the pink dogwood tree but not anymore.
The white dogwood tree is very common in our area, as you can see in the background.
I’m glad my sister didn’t cut down the rose bushes that I planted years ago.
I was hoping to find some white roses to take to the temple, I guess this will do for worshiping flowers.
My mom’s Orchid.
The lower branch is in the 12th week of blooming, that’s 3 months.
We’ll be planting these young chili peppers and Thai eggplants by next week. I’m looking forward to a 3 days weekend, we get a day off on Good Friday.
As I was leaving my dad’s house I saw a full moon.
The sky was deep blue when I got home. I guess this is what they call the blue hour and as for some, it’s the happy hour.
I´ve just heard about the storm and went here to see how things are around you. They said that North Carolina has been affected the worst, so I´m glad to see you are all right.
I think your mothers orchid gets more and more flowers, little by little, it is beautiful. It is always inspiring to see your garden and flower photos, and as I expected, of course you have posted a moon photo. It´s midnight here and when I look out of the window, I can see a nice white round moon. Ginger´s moon, I am thinking. 🙂
Hi Giiid, I already left my dad’s driveway when I saw the full moon, I went back and took out my tripod and camera. It’s really pretty. It’s amazing that we all see the same moon and it looks the same no matter where you are. Gardening is very therapeutic to me and even better to be able to harvest and cook it as well.
As for the storm, it’s so sad to see the damages. We were lucky that we only get the high wind and rains and we don’t have any huge tree near our house.
The wind over here is just as bad. Some got it worst than other. It has been like this 3 weekends in a row now. We went to Cambodian new year today. The wind was bad. If the entire temple ground was not paved we would have a dust storm. Even that the dust got into all the food. I don’t think the food vendors were happy about that.
I was wondering if there are any wildflower in your area.
Hi Dallas, I had planned to attend an event in downtown Hickory one Saturday morning but I bet it was canceled since the storm was passing through. It was high wind and pour down raining. The weather on Sunday was perfect for the new year at Wat, it’s too bad that I couldn’t eat a lot. Lee had some fried bananas and she loved it.
We have wild flowers along side the highway and it’s usually during the summer months. I’ve seen photographers parked and photograph all the time, but I don’t think it’s a good idea for me to do so.
I’m glad that the damage was not too bad where you are. It’s a shame the trees were downed, but new ones will grow. The extraordinary orchid blooms on! And the rose is a thing of beauty.
Gerry, trees downed is nothing comparing to the damages that the tornadoes had caused and at least 22 people killed in North Carolina. It’s so tragic and so sad to hear. My sisters that live in NY look forward to seeing my mom’s orchid weekly. 🙂
I love your moon pics!!
Thanks lady0fdarkness. 🙂
Wow your mom’s orchid just gets better all the time! And so are all the photos.
Your moon pics made me think of Phil Collin’s song “Same Moon“. 🙂
Cambree, it’s amazing that it blooms that long. The sky, stars, and the moon are the things that we all share no matter where we are. 🙂
