The objects of my affection...
Our new garden.........into August and holding up pretty well considering all the heat and the lack of rain. Today we had a short and gusty wind and rain shower, - the first in a number of months. The rain fell in horizontal sheets, and the flowers and trees bent down in thankfulness.
The rain has cleared the smoke from the Winthrop fire in Washington, but while it was here the hills in the valley were shades of blue, mysterious and beckoning.
We go on into August, and tonight when Casper and I went strolling there was just a hint of September in the air, - a welcome relief from the dog days of summer.
