Today we spent the day getting ready for hurricane Irene.
While George spent the day making sure our greenhouses
don't go flying off in the wind,
I spent the day putting away anything that could do the same.
It's not always easy to have a business so exposed to the elements.
But we handle it the best we can.
You would not have been able to tell by the weather today that in less then 48 hours we will go from 80 degrees, sunny and calm to
heavy rains and winds over 80 mph.
While I was putting some perennials under the benches out popped a praying mantis.
Obviously he had been enjoying the day too.
They say that praying mantis symbolize peace, quiet and
calm in our lives.
I need that right now.
I need to not panic but stay focused on getting through this storm.
I have few more things to do tomorrow morning ( in the rain)
and then we will hope for the best.
I hope any of you in the path of Irene
