Some things I saw while watering and weeding a few established plant containers out on my patios. And a few other scenes here and nearby.
|Just past those sacatons & weeding done for the weekend, the object of my drive and Saturday morning pastime.|
|More like my ritual - breakfast tacos from Rudy's, strong coffee from my kitchen, and an inspiring read. As I sit in the last of the hazy sun, looking forward to working the rest of the weekend. Well, not looking forward to that, but.....|
But first, part 2 of my Saturday AM ritual - another episode (online) of Central Texas Gardener! Then work.
|Sunday - the advertised storm with some moisture, heavy clouds. This year, one storm with .07" of rain is still better than 0"!|
|SE towards the Manzano Open Space, Spanish Land Grant, and military restricted areas - cloaked in clouds, not just secrecy|
|E into Tijeras Canyon|
|NE to the South Foothills Open Space, and where I ride and hike...brooding, thick, moist for a moment in time.|
|Already lifting, but paving actually wet|
|So close to the clouds, as the humidity rose with the temperature for a while|
|A nice feel to the air on my skin|
|Foliage of a Shrub or Desert Live Oak / Quercus turbinella, still some rain drops|
|Within 2 hours of the "advertised storm" photo - front through, temperature now only slowly|
sneaking up, but the humidity dropping like a rock
|The wind and polar air drying everything out, and pushing those clouds away - back to the usual|
