Happy summer

As we start the summer of 2008, here's a photo to remind us of the incredible beauty of this season in the garden. It may not look like this in a few weeks, but this morning was one of the most beautiful yet. (Could be 'cause I've been watering every night.)

Now if we could just get some rain ... and I mean, real rain, not the wimpy washouts we've had over the last few weeks. Thunder, lightning and then nothing. No fair! We'd like a good soaking. Sunday's forecast looked promising. Forecasters were talking thunderstorms. We had not one drop.

Happy summer!
