Kelli - you got my attention.

Here is Wild plum that opened this morning.

Must add some weather - After flood advisories yesterday with rain and grey skies, this morning was beautiful. But the wind dropped, the clouds disappeared and we ended up with a HOT, humid day.

On Wednesday my wife and I visited our neighborhood volcano at dusk and go this pic.

Dry, humid and hot again. I little cloud build up this afternoon. Not much change forecast for the next 5 days. Hanging baskets are starting to wilt.

Kelli - You ask a good question. I've not counted lately. I think there are thirty pots on the front deck, my oldest stock, 10 pots on the back deck, probably 12 in the potting greenhouse, 2 old plants on the edge of the driveway, maybe 30 in the Epi greenhouse and 60 in the Amaryllis greenhouse, 10 in the backgreenhouse and I've taken 120 cuttings fresh this year. What does that make. That makes about 270, wow, wish you hadn't asked. Over time I will try and post some pics.

Can't beat those epis Kelli. Great colors. Here's a couple of my "greenhouses" and the front deck. Don't need to enclose the ends of the greenhouse, just provide protection from the rain.

Big ant hill in the field next to the house. That's diatomaceous earth on it. Never seen an ant hill this big before. Just glad it's not in the yard.

Hi, Maxine
Sprinkling here this morning after " overnight.
Never had over " in 24 hours in May.
We managed to get garden planted that needed to be planted now. Will be laying plastic for all the vine things as soon as it dries a bit.
Peas are up, onion plants are really taking off.
Tomatoes in hoop house for 2 weeks are growing fast.

Market has been real good. Sold lots of tomato plants.
This picture is just before we started selling Sat.

The tradewinds have returned HOORAH!. Humidity is way down and we are getting some night times showers. Blue sky with light puffy white clouds drifting over the green rain forest canopy.

Love those flowers, the Epis are great and flag iris make me dream of home in England. My favorite. And those tomato plants. We had greenhouses back in England and grew tomatoes for the markets. All in large glass greenhouses. Coal boilers and water pipes for heating Remember crawling under the plants pulling weeds and taking our shoots to promote growth and larger trusses of fruit, and then sorting into different grades. We also grew cucumber and mushrooms. That was all 50 - 60 years ago.

Forget that beautiful Hawaiian weather, cloud band reached us about 30 minutes ago and its moderate to heavy rain right now. Should stay showery for the next few day.

Ah mushrooms - mixing heaps of horse manure and straw by hand (with a pitch fork) watching it heat up and decompose to a nice dark compost. Making the mushroom beds in black plastic covered greenhouses and then waiting for those thousand of white buttons to appear. Pitch black until you switched on the lights and saw the wonderland of white mushrooms of all sizes stretching into the distance.

Glad to see Juhur warm up, but last post...what the heck?

It rained off and on here today with a few weather warnings, getting another cool front, so will only be low 80's instead of low 90's for a few days. And maybe our last few nights in the 60's. Skeeters are now here in full force...bug dope is needed to work in the garden. Garden looks good though.

Another still, quiet, dry, partly cloudy day. A little hotter. Should stay this way til next Monday.
Need rain, hanging baskets and rain forest tropical need RAIN.

Kelli - I saw an Epi show on youtube but not with a display table that big.

We have started putting a bloom on our dining table in a small bowl of water. Usually lasts two or three day ... depending on how hungry we are LOL.

Where does all this humidity come from. Its like the doldrums here. Another day of sun, some clouds, dry, humid, sometimes a light warm breeze from various directions. Now they say no return of tradewinds until mid next week. Might be some thunderstorms up the other end of the island chain this weekend but that does not help us.

In the 20 years we have lived here we have gone from mainly nice cool, rainy weather to that described above. During the rainy years long, long ago we had 30 days of straight rain, 60 inches, beautiful.

We installed ceiling fans in three rooms this year due to the increasing heat.

Was 67*, cloudy and no winds in Belton, Mo - south of Pepper- fought my way across to Olathe since traffic got stalled behind a long blade on an oversize load ( they go to the big wind generators) he was on route, but too long. Picked up these storm fits with enough rain to wash the grasshopper guts off my windshield, and by Olathe, Ks the winds are kicking 26mph, temp dropped to 65* - i knew a storm was due since my hair went from trying to crawl toward the walls of my truck, to behaving like hair again.

I 435 west at state lines, morning traffic, and then clouds from the storms...

I have long ago decided that cities are guinea pigs undergoing massive experiments for telemarketers and researchers. Cities all have their own personalities. Like LA is different than the eastern reaches of the state. LA says yeah we have smog so thick you cant see in front of the hood of your vehicle and headaches, and blowing dust that piles up hundreds of vehicles along with the usual desert smog- and are always under water restrictions- but where else would we go that has EVERY sport and recreation within 2 hrs? Ski? Surf? Antique shows? Hollywood? Etc. Utah says ' the blondes are imports to help the tourist business, and it doesn't matter if I get killed driving stupid, I am goin to heaven. New Jersey does everything screamin and shoutin, horn blowin, run over anything in their way- including concrete blocks to protect people. Dallas says, let me go, i will let you go and we will get there as fast as possibe at 90mph to 0mph in 2 seconds flat. Ft Worth its ' look how good these brakes are on this little compact car! I can stop an 18 wheeler and the whole interstate when I use them. There is always drivers thinking they are going to actually teach someone a lesson no matter what they have to do to teach em. Canadians drive like they are out to kill Americans and have really arrogant nasty attitudes. I hate Florida the worst. Plain suicidal and out to push their way thru anyone.

Surprise, wet all day today. Came up from the south overnight. Still light winds and humid but cooler.
Higher than average number of hurricanes forecast this year due to El Nino.

Come drive in Hawaii Kittriana - love your comments - Honolulu has worst traffic in the nation.

On the Big Island we drive barefoot or in slippers, pass either side. Its mostly pickups old and new and SUVs. Drive 45 in 55 limit - or other choice is 65 in 55 limit. Watch out for drunk drivers or drugged drivers. Very few large rigs. Just a few pulling containers from the docks or hauling logs or gasoline tankers.
Drive the new highway across the island and get a ticket.

Chuckl. Try 85 in 70mph. Nevada- Montana, lots of room tho. Heard tales of your cops bein the largest Samoans findable and the roads made of lava rock. You get a plethora of tourists and bad habits agreed. Florida is full of the Cuban communities and every New Yorker tired of living in the city. 500 minimum miles southbound of bumper to bumper inch along traffic all but 1hr after midnite. They have the median cables nonstop down the center to keep them on concrete or they park on everything. pass on the shoulders, use the on/off ramps to try and cheat traffic speeds. Austin, Texas is bad about that one and I suspect it came up oit of Mexico from what I see in the lower tips of Texas. They pull out and park all over the hwy, the shoulders, the medians...They haven't made me a truck that can handle that hwy terrain to Hawaii yet...

Happy Memorial day weekend to you all.
Gonna be a hot one here, up to 97, but at least humidity is very low at hottest part of the day, sunny and 20% of rain, which means no rain.

kittriana, I have to laugh at your description of Florida drivers, I hate driving the highways here, always under construction and the worst drivers are down in South FL, where they were born with cell phones glued to their ears and are all over the place. The rules are certainly "anything goes" down there. We live an hour NE from Disney World and have way too many tourist from all over the world here that have no clue where they are going. I miss the days when a rental car had a Z or a Y at the beginning of the license plate so you knew to watch out for them.

We take the back roads as much as possible, even when we are in the motor-home with Jeep in tow. Just a lot easier on the nerves. I let the hubs drive the highways when in the moho, especially in the south US because I get truckers pull aside me and flirt...WTH? Husband thinks it is hilarious.

Chuckl, some of those truckers consider rv'ers to be traveling hen houses - to protect the lot lizzies from the law- commercial company includes commercial buffaloes, mustangs ( ithink they call the boy/boy combos) and the Lizards. If you have a cb, do not speak, listen but dont speak unless you can hold your own in the nonsense. Any language is fair game.

Pepper,
We haven't had a soaking humidity yet.

Part of the weather is Climate Change/Global Warming and some is a natural trend. Either way, the weather is changing for all of us.

One of our weather forecasters describes it as the best weather on the planet.
It rained on and off all night and just as the sun came up the clouds cleared, the rain stopped, a nice trade wind breeze picked up. Now the sky is an amazing shade of blue with those light fluffy white clouds drifting lazily from east to west with not a care in the world. Just sit back in the shade, look up through the trees and dream of ...your choice.
Forecast for the next week - more of the same!

Two new epis out today - Irette and Bayou Belle

Oklahoma City on the ne side. 79* 68% humidity. Watched Tall thunderheads march across the prairies from Joplin to Ok City- sweet summer rainfalls and gone, warm and mowers had been cutting the prairie grasses and sweet clovers so the smell was mixed with honeysuckle and rraindrops beaded the leaves. The buffalo was captured unexpectedly- i honestly didnt see him there, and at sunset the 'grackles(birds) flew and I got them squalling and clattering. '

Kittriana - great photos - are you sure that buffalo is not one of those silhouette cut outs, like, OK you can take it way now. Amazing - you certainly get around and see wonderful things.

Over here showers started late evening yesterday, nice amount of light rain overnight. Clouds disappeared before the sun came up and now we have a perfectly clear sky from one horizon to the other, 7am, 68f, very light winds - perfect.
Should be the same again tomorrow.

Well have to drive in to work now.

Hot and humid again today. Mid 80s for high. We had occasional nice breezes but when they went away they did a good job of making us miserable til the next one came. Finally cooled off when stray rain moved back in the area again. Loving the short rain showers!!

The buffalo is a cutout, chuckle- lazy beasts graze and sleep so that pose is a dead giveaway. I was surprised because I didnt AIM for his picture- the camera caught him when I wasnt looking. 82* til dark. Dallas, Tx cooler when the sun set.

That blue Hawaiian sky lasted about 2 hours.

Most of the day has been passing heavy short showers with sun in between. Got caught in the garden dept of Home Depot this afternoon. Rain too heavy to run to the van for a few minutes.

Purchased a Cochilosterna Odoratissimum. That's what is says on the label. Never seen one before, had to have it!

I don't find the weather channel all that accurate for my area, either. I use the National Weather Service via weatherunderground.com.

Nice shot of the Buffalo Kittriana! And Kelli nice collection of succulents, I do have a love for cacti, probably from growing up in Calif. :-)

It was 80 at 8:30 this morning, high predicted 89 and afternoon thunderstorms, although the keep missing us.

Flowers on my philodendron are quite interesting, they have such a strong sweet fragrance at dusk and dawn...

It is 56F now, which is great but they are calling for 89F, which is not great. We are still way above average for the high.
