We were, as the Flower Lady said, "spared." There are now a couple of tons of sopping wet leaves marring the greenswards of the estate, but I'm not complaining. I know this was a hybrid storm, but I'd put it at 80% nor'easter and 20% hurricane. Does this look like a tropical system to you? My brother-in-law sends it from the western provinces.

These guys flew in just before the storm, and we were able to keep the feeder out all during it. First I've seen of the snowbirds this season.

I have the day off. I usually use snow days to do taxes, but of course it's too early for that. Too bad, ha, ha. I am blogging while the FL slaves away in her underground studio, working in silks and dried materials. This is what she came up with. I said it looked like an extraterrestial life form; she said it just "evolved."

This just in: The Flower Lady reports that the life form has evolved even further! She felt the orb stuck out "like a sore thumb." Her creation now looks like this:
Well, what do you think?

Not Sure What's Going on Here...

Are they painting the house to match the truck? But it's the painter guy's vehicle.  Does he specialize? "We'll paint your house any color you want, so long as it is green." Maybe they just had a lot of green sitting around?

Nice old Ford, though.
