Thanks burn for the nice start. Hope spring arrives there for you? I've one that I'd like to share. Could anyone dream of a better place to be spending Mother's Day than this young Mom and her small daughter with Papa on board? Look at sunset on that special day.

Kim, you are so fortunate to live in such a beautiful area. How nice it would be if that family in the boat happened upon your photos of them here on DG.

Oh okay, I see now Moon. Thanks Margaret. I hope to find the young couple and the child as the boating season is on the way. Boaters and fishermen alike really enjoy my "tropical garden" I created on the pier. My furbabies also enjoy "birding" in the area. lol Here they're in the early morning hours.

Hi Kim. We are on the East bank of the Mississippi so all is high and dry here...too dry...no rain to speak of in over a month. I guess we all have figured out that Mother nature is not happy. My friends in Tuscaloosa are out of the hospital and on the road to recovery...their home and possessions are gone, but they both survived it. My heart goes out to the folks in Joplin, also.

Hope all is well at your house.

Yes, "Mother nature is not happy..." agreed. I'm glad you are not being directly affected by the flood. We've so many things to be thankful of everyday, you and I.

How serene and lovely Kim.

Now that all the neighbor's trees have leafed out, I don't "see" the sun rise until it is above the tree line...by then, it is just the sun...grin. Lately, whether it rains or not, and usually NOT, it is too overcast to see the sunsets. I told DH I need an observation deck up high enough to see the sunrise...he just grinned and shook his head...LOL

I hear that, 'Moon'. At least the DH know how to 'listen'. lol. It's the very deck that we've that afforded that view of sunrise for me in the morning. Only round this time of year, other time, I've to hop on the goft cart to go around the Island to watch the sunrise. From our back deck however, we can see sunset most days. I'm glad you've enjoyed the view.

About the rain, it has been terrible drought 'til last week. When it rained it poured though. Today, was the first day I had put the springlers on for the flowers in the garden in a week. Had the task accomplished early before the temp. rises.

Not cold at all, Kim. Right now, at 8pm it's 17C (62F) and we had a maximum of 20C (68F) today. Jeans and T-shirt weather. It does get colder than that, but where we are, the lowest it would ever get would be about 3C as an overnight minimum, maybe two or three times during winter. The other side of the country is much cooler than here. Where my sister is, in Canberra, which is a few hundred km west of Sydney, is freezing. They had something like -8C last night and really cold maximums.

I'm waking up at 6 a.m. to water and enjoy the sunrise, if I get up early enough. It's around 6 these days.I have some pics to download from my camera. Here's a picture of some of the sunflowers in my veggie garden.

Hi Moon.
I can't get any nice sunset or sunrise. We had such a wet Spring and Summer. Lots of lightning and Thunder storms, some hail, even had a tornado come through town. I was sure my birch (bird) tree out back, was a goner, but it stood. there were lots of uprooted trees in town, a few streets in town lost power, for about 20 hrs. An outdoor theater was torn apart. And a Barn was destroyed by a lightning fire with 11 cows and ??? goats. The guy manage to save a few of his cows and goats. But through all of this, we are thankful, no one got hurt.

Hi moon. It's chilly here at present, but we're expecting warm days in the coming week. I've loved the winter. Our winters are very mild. Summers are much harder to take. Signs that spring is just around the corner are everywhere.

Here's a sunrise a few days ago from the small town of Augusta, on the south west coast of Western Australia. The Southern Ocean is in the background, beyond the mouth of the Blackwood River.

Pretty similar, moon. Some summers get hotter, with temps up in the high 30's to low to mid 40's (yuck). Anything's tolerable as long as it cools down a bit at night. It didn't do that last summer.

Yeah, we have had a few days at 38C...whew! and our nights are staying pretty much between 23 and 25C. The lack of rain has been a real problem also. A little less than 1 inch thus far...usually closer to 3 inches this far into August. As a whole we are more than 10 inches below the norm...and my water bill reflects every inch...grin. strangely, our humidity levels have been fairly high staying over 60% even at midday. gives that lovely sauna effect...grin
