MyPod

Can I tell you that I have had a nano ipod for quite some time now (it’s embarassing how long) and am just NOW putting the tunes on it?  It may have to do with the subliminal thought “I bought this to wear while exercising” so if it is ready to go, then I should be exercising.  Naaa, I’m sure that’s not it.

But what I do have (in addition to my new tunes – why did I wait so long?) are pods in the garden.  First, my Moonflower pods.

Which have turned into these.

Aren’t they gorgeous?  They open their blooms at night, hence the name Moonflower, but you had probably figured that out.

And, these pods which are the seed pods for the Moonflower.

and my Butterfly Weed pods. 

Which I hope will make more of these

After being over 100 degrees for …Idon’t know… like 20 days, NOW it is raining to the point of flooding.   But the real weather fantasmo happened yesterday while I was at work.   A TORNADO came right at our building, we saw the funnel, the debris cloud and then it went back up into the wall cloud.  It came back down and hit about a block away moving a semi truck and damaging some buildings.  Very surreal.

Hopefully this weekend will be back to normal weather ( whatever that is) and I will be able to work in the garden.  I think I will be able to gather enough ground cherries to make some jelly!!  Can’t Wait!
