happy flowers after a flood of rain

It's good to be back in this space.  I'm hoping to make it out in the garden today for some heavy duty weeding.  We've had our own personal Shark Week here at Cicada Cottage and are slowly working our way back into life.  A huge rainfall yesterday has given us a new start in the yard.  A huge outpouring of prayers and support has done the same for our hearts (and Lucy's leg).

We're eating tomatoes every day.  Tomatillos are ripening faster than we can roast them.  A bumper crop of jalapenos and cantaloupe mean summer is still in full force.  August is the best month for fresh eating! 

What are you eating?
