A few years ago, our home was grass or trees; and in the coming soon next phase of Independence construction, the cleared but empty land across from the end of our road will soon be houses and townhouses – indeed the first three townhouse blocks have begun construction at the far side.
So before it’s impossible to see the weather, blocked by houses, here’s a view:

Maybe I should remember to take this view again, a year from now!
Some time ago, we purchased this indoor plant from local Lowes; I was quite convinced that it was a plastic plant – the leaves felt plastic, and the gravel “soil” was GLUED in place! But Margaret was convinced it was real, and the plant proved her right by growing a number of new shoots, that are now uncurling leaves all the way along them:
I have no idea what it’s called, but the new leaves are quite interesting as they uncurl over the last few days:
I suspect this plant will be too big for indoors, in a year or two!
Our regular sunny / wet / stormy / whatever weather brings us tonight a beautiful rainbow over our home (even a partial double):
The rainbow appears to start right over Magic Kingdom, same spot we see the evening fireworks!
Meanwhile, looking the other way we get to watch yet another lovely sunset!
