It’s been a very wet July, though not a particularly hot one. There have even been nights that we were able to turn off the air conditioner. I can’t remember the last summer that was possible.
I could lament the plight of farmers, and how the glut of rain has drowned their crops of fruits and vegetables. I could rant about climate change. But I’m choosing instead, to take a few moments to smell the flowers. I’ve been ranting enough. I need a break.
…and, I suspect, you do too.

Our Hibiscus plant didn’t like the wet weather. It waited until just last week to bloom.
Now, as if in a rush to catch up, it’s throwing out multiple flowers at odd times of the day.
It took the Morning Glories a while to flower, as well. It’s like they wanted to sleep-in until the rain subsided.
“Wake us when the rain stops.”
