|The blotch in the center of the pond is the island reemerging. The turtles will be happy to have it back.|
The temperatures have gone up again this week, but not as dramatically as during the first heat wave. This means that we're only experiencing temperatures as high as 103 degrees as opposed to 113, for which I'm profoundly grateful.
Speaking of gratitude, the lilies are very smug this morning because someone forgot to turn off the hose last evening so they were misted all night.
Yes, lilies can smile.
