Summer rains

Since the summer rains have begun, the daylilies, sunflowers and cosmos have begun to flower. The grass now requires a weekly "haircut" and the frogs are singing on a daily basis as they celebrate the returning moisture.

Another result of the rain is mushrooms. Several have popped up along the driveway.

The tomatoes continue to grow, some successfully, some not. There are people who have so many tomatoes that they give away bushels and bushels. I am not yet one of those people. As a matter of fact, the tomato plant that has produced most successfully so far, was a volunteer!

Still, I look forward to my annual tomato adventure. As with many other areas of my life, each year I learn a little more and make a little more progress.
