Weed Dreaming


I'm dreaming of the beach.  But I'm weeding and watering in reality.  Heat hit our home full force this week.  I killed one of my lovely ferns on the screen porch.  I think I can revive it though.  This is the first time this growing season I've had to get out with the hose.  I soaked the vegetables today because I locked myself and the four rascals outside so I thought I may as well get some work done.  Then, after said rascals were in bed I went out and trimmed the wisteria, chopped down the rust-laden hollyhocks and weeded like a mad woman until it was too dark to see (9:00).

It was just me and the fireflies.  Not bad for not being the beach.
