Birds and other wildlife around my home is my primary connection, but the few potted plants I’ve managed to keep flowering despite heat and dryness are important too as are the orchids, the last of which are still blooming.
Normally, photography would be in the mix. I have taken some pictures, but it has been too hot to go outside for more than a few minutes.
Supposedly the heat will break tonight. It was supposed to rain last night, but — what a shock — it didn’t, though there have been lots of scattered thunderstorms in the area. I should mention that according to Weather (maybe it ought to be Whether?) dot com, it IS raining.
Owen says on the other side of Uxbridge, it’s pouring. People called to tell him, but there was no rain here or in town. I suppose we are on the “dry as a bone” side of town. I want to think all the water will go into the same aquifer, but we could use some of that wetness up top, too where the parched leaves and flowers are gasping for water.
We have had clouds, but no rain. We still live in hope. Maybe later.
