Catherine Street

It's that time of year when poinciana trees are in bloom.

The orange flame trees are known as royal poinciana in this town and their blooms make a right mess as summer progresses and they shed all over the place.

Cheyenne hugs the shade this time of year. This is the time of year when car covers magically appear shamanistically hoping to protect vehicles from the vicissitudes of summer while their owners enjoy the grandchildren Up North. They'll be back when the snows return and they will expect the cars to start right up.

Cars in use sit in direct sunlight.

Clean and swept of potential flying objects that could cause damage in a hurricane.

This snowbird uses the newer plastic see through hurricane shutters. I like aluminum but being inside the house in darkness when the aluminum shutters rattle in the wind is a little spooky.

I never cease to wonder why people leave Key West in summer.

Cheyenne likes it eve. Youth she keeps to the shade and...

...I keep the walks short.
