Sunday Sunlight

More red Penstemmon, lighting up the shade. It's almost done blooming now, and I'm seeing little lavender asters popping up here and there, a sure sign that autumn is on the way. I'm praying that this autumn is like last year; cool and wet instead of hot and dry.

We got a tiny spritz of rain today, but not enough to do anything any good. Thunderstorms are predicted for tomorrow but, unfortunately, they usually produce more lightening than rain. And more lightening-caused fires. I hate/love this time of year. Love the autumn holidays, hate the heat, dry weather and the stress of never knowing if we'll have to flee from a fire at a moment's notice...or even if we'll have enough notice to flee.

Flooding in the East from too much rain, fires in the West from not enough rain. How I wish there could be balance.


  1. We're delighted to be getting much-needed rain from the tropical storm. That worry about forest fires always comes on this time of year.

  2. So glad you're getting rain, Vicki.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, I appreciate it!
