plums and rust



The neighbor brought over a huge bag full of plums this afternoon, He said there are more if you want.
My other friend put three large bags full on her porch for people to take, please!
Fruit trees have loved the sunshine this year, we have had no rain!
The forest fire smoke is still here and the sun looks surreal, like a weirdly lit gobstopper, casting a strange light on everything.




Rust is still rusting however, all around the neighborhood



Erik has to have surgery , has to make an appointment tomorrow for MRI and stuff, He really did a number on his beautiful self.

    1. dammit, yes we do Ms. Moon! You stay safe down there in the big raging wind that seems to have picked up half of the ocean to slam into land! I want you to gather up the babies and chooks and run!

    1. Thanks you, He has so many lovely caring friends willing to step up on day of surgery and the days after. It is kind of a big deal, I googled - I am now terrified. He will be OK, He is young and strong- he has made it through several horrifying injuries and surgeries. He will be OK....Thank you for your thoughts! LOVE YOU!

    1. The plums this year are hyperbole!! I do not have time to freeze them or make things. Wish I could bring them along!

  4. Magenta suns and moons are the norm here during July and August and September. No matter what is going up in a hell of smoke and fire--we are downwind. Seems like it has been so ever since Yellowstone was torched. (In spite of that horror the Park is recovering nicely but still accented with blackened tree trunks-Nature recovers and will still be here after we destroy ourselves). So sorry about Eric's crash. One of the sad parts about young people being so healthy is that they are expected now to carry the burden of the cost of everyone's health care. The one's who haven't made much money yet. ????? Our boy is staring down the same canon. He can't afford insurance and rides his bike like a bat out of hell. sigh
