Look what’s growing in my yard. Can you believe it? A palm tree, an actual palm tree! I’m having a hard time believing that I’m living where palm trees live year-round outside, in the ground. I think I’ll rather get used to it, even if I giggle like a maniac at times for “no apparent reason” when I consider my good fortune! Especially come January.
I’m here, hubby-dearest is here, but our stuff is still en-route. So I’m just making a quick, fly-by posting to let everyone know that a) I’m alive and well, and b) I’ll get back to my version of “normal” at some point, I promise. Just not quite yet.
As I went outside to take the palm tree photo, what should be lying on my sidewalk? This gorgeous black snake. It slide away–fast–before I could lift the camera and snap a pic, so here’s all you get as proof:
Still, proof enough to me that this place will like me! I mean, a snake in my yard already! It’s like finding a four-leaf clover, IMO. Hurray!
I’ve yet to see an alligator, or a bat, but this is a great start, don’t you think? And if you’ve got a favorite move-shock story, feel free to share.
