Sunrise over the island
After Monday night's severe thunderstorms (highly unusual here on the coast), we awoke this morning to a beautiful sunrise. The second day after a frontal passage generally brings a whole new, clean air mass and this morning is no exception. The temperatures are in the low 50's and it feels great after the heat and humidity earlier in the week!
The only downside is that the storm, which was accompanied by 1/2 inch hail, did a number on my garden. The canna's leaves were literally shredded and the taller perennials beaten down by wind, rain and hail. They're beginning to perk up a bit this morning, but I may have to get out this weekend and do a bit of staking.
