After Hurricane Florence

In Raleigh we did not receive the worst of Hurricane Florence. The electricity did go off at 5 am Friday morning and did not come back on until 1pm Saturday,

In the middle of the storm the Colchicums bloomed! They are like giant fall crocus:

And a moonflower

And Passion flower

Here are some photographs from around Raleigh:

The Coast and Wilmington area are much worse…
