I'm glad I take a lot of pictures because I have a bit of stuff
to choose from when things look bleak. Like now.
It's hot here, with temperatures in the high 90s most days
and reaching over 100 for most of this week.
I go out fairly early to take care of errands, but otherwise stay inside.
The hot weather has withered most of the flowers,
trees are looking tired, and the grass has turned to yellow,
brittle straw. Supposedly, the area should
return to more normal temps next week.
