last week it was over 100 degrees every day. so that makes this week of off and on rain and temperatures in the 70s pretty glorious. plus the grass in my back yard has stopped its slow change to a solid brown color and the leaves of my hydrangea have stopped getting scorched. actually, the rain has knocked a bunch of leaves down from the trees and it looks a little like fall (i wish). my flowers are extremely happy and even the pile of wildflower seeds that i dumped in an empty spot in the garden is looking like it might get to the point of blooming – i really didn’t think any of them would. in any case, the dogs and i spent a nice afternoon playing around in the wet grass and being thankful for the cooler temps.
little arty (below) is still adoptable by the way. i can’t believe we’ve had him for over 6 months. he needs a forever home!
the moon man is hilarious when he starts in on his sweet gum ball playin’ – he doesn’t need help – he’ll just toss the gumball around all by himself and dodge around and pounce…adorable:
it’s kind of rare that he’ll let me take pictures while he does this. usually he’ll eye me askance and walk off. but not today!
