Surprise! Tonight there will be NO bitching about the verdant expanse that is my yard. It poured here this morning, so everything is well watered and basking in h-u-m-i-d-i-t-y, lovely tropical greenhouse-like steaminess.
My toes are again a cheerful green. The sweat is drying nicely, thank you.
In a few minutes, my face will be less red, too. The shower will feel mah-h-h-velous...lol
Too bad I left the camera at work, because there are lotsa new marvels out there, like the tiny mushrooms on the wood under the edge of the ferns; my second crop of irises are blooming (shades of blue with a little yellow in each blossom); there's a bush-like plant that I got from a neighbor that's blooming too--pink pointy clusters of flowers on top; and oh man, the lupines are starting! They're lavendar-y buds that open to blue, and elegant leaves that are stunning with drops of water on them (no trouble there lately!) The flowers I planted on Sunday are all happy and look fine 'cuz the weeds haven't had time to grow, yet.
Tomorrow: A picture of pink peonies in bloom!
