It pretty much rained here all last week. Sometimes it was actually raining so hard you couldn’t hear yourself think. I had gone to the grocery one day, and the rain came down so hard, everyone was pulled over to the side of the road. You literally could not see the car in front of you.
We did have a little break one afternoon so we took Rusty walking around the small lake/pond here at the park. I wanted to see if I could find any wild flowers or unusual plants. I did pretty good, and even scared up a Blue Heron.
OK, I will try to name some of these flowers, and if I am wrong, you all feel free to correct me. Top left I think is spider wart, right back: some kind of fern, bottom left: water lily, middle bottom: wild flocks, and I know what the other one is, I fought it in my gardens at home, but the name escapes me at the moment. Thistle???? How did I do? Click on the pictures to make them larger…
I am fairly sure these are water lilies. And they were my pick of the day. I think they are perfect flowers, surrounded by the perfect colors to show them off.
This is a picture of the blue heron I scared off and some more pictures of the RV Park and cabins. It was a nice walk and my second of the day in between rain storms.
Our plans have changed again. We had planned to go to South Carolina from here, but I am still having a bit of trouble with my heart, and my daughter, Shannon thinks it would be best for me to go to a Heart specialist. She works for a group of them and has moved my appt. up from June, to April. The only way I know to explain what is going on, is that it is beating out of rhythm. They think it may be A-Fib, but won’t know till they can do some tests. Quite frankly I am not used to feeling bad and am sick of it. I will be glad to just finally find out what the heck is going on, and do something about it.
We will leave here on the 16th and make a couple of over-night stops on the way back to Indiana. That should make for a less tiring trip all the way round.
I am so happy. I have had my bird feeder out for 2 weeks, or since we got here, and today I finally had some red-winged black birds stop and feed. They are the only ones I have seen on it, but hope there will be more. I know there is plenty for the birds to eat this time of year, but I do love to watch them.
Going to make this a short post. Later… :)
