Personal plunge pool overlooking the Okavango Delta.
Hyatt Hotel, Raleigh, NC - a night now and then
for a 'staycation' - before COVID of course!
So, no pool, no beach trips, no visits to a lake or pond
right now. Thankful for cool indoor air, whirring
ceiling fans, tall iced drinks, ice cream.
I made my own this week, Pistachio, and it's good!
Served here in one of my dear friend Gina's
pretty bee bowls.
The garden is struggling in this heat of course.
Bob and I were out there very early this morning,
watering and dead heading petunias, geraniums,
soaking hydrangeas and the pots of basil etc.
Last evening I spied this first moonflower
unfurling its petals - watched for a couple of hours,
then caught the full blown flower before dusk.
My moonflowers and morning glories are now
tangled happily together, clambering up the porch.
Ipomoea alba, sometimes called the tropical white morning-glory or moonflower
or moon vine, is a species of night-blooming morning glory, native to tropical
and subtropical regions of the New World, from northern Argentina north to Mexico,
Florida and Puerto Rico. Wikipedia
Here's to another week ahead.
Stay cool, be strong, remain well dear friends.
