My window world this morning! As you can see, the Lake level has risen almost up to the drainage pipe across the way on the right. The trees have become more bare in the last few days of wind and rain and I can see clear to the other side of the next street. In the other seasons of the year, we can hardly see any houses on the other side because the foliage is so thick. The pitiful litte bare tree in the foreground is a Crepe Myrtle tree that the Beaver felled and took away 2 years ago. It has come back nicely and was full of beautiful deep pink blossom clusters that remind me much of the Lilac bushes back in my hometown. Crepe Myrtle blossoms are exactly that, crepey-ha! The have wonderful little frills on each petal making them look soft and hugable. A warm fuzzy, ha! The roses are still blooming outside this den window and I love them so much. They are the wonderful bright spot even on a dreary day.
Oh! And while I am writing, who pops up but the Swan couple!! I was so excited I jumped from window to window to catch them as they seemed on a mission and were heading North up the lake! I was able to catch them dunking for the green plants that flourish under the water. Yeah! How Blessed I am to live here!
