Spring-Slight Reprise

Spring has sprung in the middle of July. A succession of fronts has brought cool temperatures, storm fronts, drizzle.
Moaning about NE Ohio, a local tradition, has reached record levels. Not here.
Having spent a month in south China,were the temperatures reached the mid to upper nineties and humidity hovered in the 70-80 percent range, the recent weather has been refreshing. I have been able to get out and remove weeds out of the bed . The job is considerably easier with cooler temperatures and adequate moisture. Only the containers on the deck need watering and then only every few days.
Overcast skies saturate the colors of the yard and the scent of flowers permeates the air.
Hot, humid weather will come and sun worshipers will rejoice, but not me.
