For once, we didn't nearly succumb to the heat. As a matter of fact the temperatures are in the high 60s here today. One day its in the 90s, the next it's in the 60s. Dress cool... carry a sweater! :) We couldn't have asked for a nicer day. A light sprinkle of rain every once in a while, a light breeze - just when you needed it, and enough sun to warm you when you got a little chilled.
A four-leaf clover (its second one so far this season) and 650 (yes, I counted them) cicada shells. Is that gross, or what? All of them from the Burning Bushes at the corner of the house. The cicadas are buzzing so loudly that you can even hear them from inside the house with the doors and windows completely shut.
All-in-all, they're not too bad. I'll take a few weeks of them over those pesky Aphids that I can't seem to rid our yard of any day!
