02. First I was on vacation
03. I have been back for a month now.
04. I don't particularly like the month of august.
05. Because of the high humidity
06. The weather forecast is highly promising.
07. Promising much more pleasant temperatures
08. but unfortunately much shorter days!
09. - 11: pictures from my hibiscus. Click to enlarge if you wish

12. The picture posted below was taken on tuesday evening. Scroll down for a second, I'll wait!
13. It was an awesome full moon, which I cannot photograph with my little camera. And in case you are not familiar with this blog: I live here, only a short way from the beach and the Mediterranean sea.

  12. I soooooooo need a ticket to Barcelona! I wonder if Santa would bring me one? Never to early to start wishing...

    I LOVE Hibiscus! But in this neck of the woods they are annuals! (they say bring them in and they will winter okay - but they get sO full of ants during summer that there is NO way they are coming IN for the winter!)

  16. Pictures of hibiscus sounds like a poem. I think August is sad because I can feel the end of summer in it, but it gets so hot that a part of you feels ready for it.

  17. Great hibiscus pics!

    How do get the plants so large? Mine don't seem to make it through the winter and I have to replant each year. Not extremely low temps, sometimes in the mid-to-upper 20s is the worst. So, how to I bank them to live through that?

  18. Beautiful hibiscus. They're so gorgeous, and highly tropical looking! I have a lot of 'em in our yard that I planted.

    And if you ever do the blog anagram...let me know. I'd love to read them.

  20. We've had a humid August here too - well past 100% with small drops of it coming from the sky almost every day ...

  21. What pretty, pretty hibiscus :-))

    Hi Mar, honey. I just scrolled down and now know what my sweet friend looks like :-)

    We had a beautiful silver-white full moon last night, it was quite exceptional.

    August here in the UK was much like July and June - mostly rain and cold.....definitely a summer to forget here in England!

Thanks so very very much, Mar.......

  26. Oh, lovely hibiscus...do you have lizards where you are the way my parents in Mexico do? (Their iguana likes to eat hibiscus)

  27. August stinks, apparently even where you live. I am so done with the humidity. Give me January days any day.

    And, by the way, I don't the picture of you (in a few posts above) looks like Severus Snape. You're much too beautiful. Plus, don't you wear red lipstick like me? (I thought that was true from a TT we'd done a year or so ago.)

  28. I don't care much for humidity. we've been quite lucky this summer, though, here in New England.
