We were very excited about the Perseid meteor shower peaking last night. We placed our reclining lawn chairs out front where the view isn't obstructed by any trees, opened a bottle of wine, and we waited. It wasn't as spectacular as I had hoped, but we gave it up a little early. I kept dozing off! The Old Hippie saw two good ones with dust trails, but I missed both of them. We saw about a dozen total.
The heat is on! A couple of weeks ago, the forcast said 105F, but it actually got up to 108F.
This is what I saw through the French doors last night after we came in from stargazing.
A Spring Peeper!
So cute... and then he was off like a rocket.
I got this freaky little plant as a Christmas gift, but I don't know what it is. Anyone know? It is definitely not aloe. I was told that it would get much bigger and put off babies (or offshoots if you prefer the botanical term) like an airplane plant (chlorophytum comosum). It has not gotten any bigger since Christmas, and no babies so far. The unexpected mushroom was a nice surprise! I am thinking that I need to transplant it to a bigger container.
Peace, love and happiness,
