Stormy, Stinky Monday
Here are the northernmost bands of Isaac coming in yesterday. Beautiful, though, aren't they?
Today we've got 100kph wind gusts and a whole lot of noisy rain! Nobody slept much last night, just too much howling from the winds. And we're only at the very edges of this thing. Isaac is a big boy!
So my somewhat perverse Senecio serpens decides to bloom in all this. It even leaned its flower stalk into the rainy window to get a better view yesterday.
Noooooo. STINKY FEET. Like a teenage boy's gym locker! I kid you not. So I guess at least some Senecios use the same trick as Hoodias and Amorphophallus titanum (Corpse Flower), and stink it up to attract those fun little bugs that are Nature's Cleanup Crew and go for the dead stuff. Yuck. I hate Mondays....
