Saving Crepe Myrtles from Isaac

We were on the perimeter of Hurricane Isaac so we got a lot of strong scary winds and lots of rain especially last Wednesday. Before the storm got here, I went out and cut some crepe myrtles before the winds could blow them down. They actually gave life to our family room in spite of the gloom outside.
 
I took my pink flower shaped tea set with butterfly finials out. I thought I would amuse myself by beautiful things to neutralize the mood outside. The mark under the teapot says Global Design Rose Connection by Kate Williams.

I love that tray with 2 raised blue birds and pink flowers.

 I used an Old Britain Castles teacup set beause it was the first one I spotted in the kitchen china cabinet.



Except for more rain, the weather is so much better now. I am thankful that the extent of our damage is just having a few broken planters and broken tree limbs that is all over the deck and yard. I still have a lot of cleaning up to do.
