Those two large pieces of palm tree in the foreground? Earlier today, they were still attached to the palm tree trunk on the left - now visible to the top of the picture only as a grey stump. It was extremely windy this morning, which left me tying down the curtains on the upstairs balcony as though they belonged to a schooner in mid-sail, and having some very anxious thought about fire danger and then later - see those two mock Adirondack chairs? - one of them has lost its cushion, and I had to retrieve it from down the slope. And various plants in pots blew over. And then, juts like that, late afternoon, the wind dropped. But it'll be back tomorrow.
