I was surprised to wake up to cloudy skies this morning. It's been a weird summer that way. It seems like summer just can't get off and running this year. I hear the same thing from friends all over the country, that it's been especially wet and rainy. We haven't had as much time on the back porch this year, mostly because we haven't had the motivation or the foresight to put the chair cushions away when rain is expected, so when the rain does stop and it's nice and cool, we don't have dry places to sit. As my son likes to say, "First world problem, Mom." I know, it's not a big deal, but a wet butt is annoying just the same.
Yesterday, I stalked the garden center at Walmart and picked up some bedraggled black-eyed Susan's to fill in a few empty spots in the garden. If my garden next year takes off the way I see it in my mind's eye, it's going to be gorgeous!
Happy Monday, to one and all.
