Hmmm.... What could this be?Thunder, lightning ~ things we rarely hear in a high plains desert ~ followed by the sounds of shattering glass. I guessed it was a window... but what window? I couldn't find it.
When I walked out to the deck, to enjoy my early morning coffee, I spotted the victim of the surprise storm. The glass top to the only decent outdoor table I own, shattered into a hundred tiny bits!
Go figure ~ I muttered to myself. Because just last night I'd emailed a BBQ invitation to my master gardening friends. (I'm so very proud of the garden this year, I have to show it off!) I guess now we'll just sit in the grass and enjoy the lovely view.
Fortunately for me, the rowdy girls who populate my gardens seem none the worse for wear:
Southwest Monsoons: a group of savvy meteorologist have taken on the mighty task of educating people about this very real weather pattern. Here it is July 23rd and this is the first rain my flowers have seen all summer!
Wildflowers wait with baited breath for this annual summer deluge. Schedule a hike the week after a heavy drenching to see spectacular blooms celebrate this life-giving rain.
