when it’s hot & dry

There has been extreme heat this month across the country, and without compensating rainfall or exorbitant water bills, many of the usual green-lawned neighborhoods are now brown and weedy.  Tonight while a pie was baking in the oven (upcoming post!), I went outside in my mom’s flowers.  I was drawn to the effects of the heat wave in the garden, like pop up Queen Anne’s Lace, dried up daisies and thirsty cone flowers.  Then I thought about the thalo green grass that sometimes appears from under the snow in late winter.
