After last summer’s damn-near backbreaking heat, I am so glad to see us usher this one in with rain, wind, and lightning. It does my heart good to walk out into my backyard and see my flowers prospering,
my herbs having a ball,
my lettuce lettucing,
and my tomatoes being all green and lush with little baby flowers waiting to be delicious.
You know, as opposed to last year when everything was dead for miles around.
I know my gardens aren’t perfectly manicured, weeded, or prize-winning. But, they’re mine. And they give me a happy.
