The Monks Hood are well on their way. It won't be long until the flower beds have bursts of purple sprinkled throughout. I have been watching for that single cone flower to pop up. They are couple of weeks out. It is proof that the mid season is just around the corner. I am sure once it slows down a bit, I will become more reminiscent. But until then, we will keep enjoying the dog days of summer. I guess that term doesn't apply to us since the high yesterday was 65" with a low of 49". I will try and remember these times when I am melting in the heat next year. It will take awhile for my internal thermostat to regulate back to the hot and humid days in the south. This mountain girl has had it good for the past twelve years. If you need a reprieve from those hot summer days, come on up for a visit. We will have plenty of lemonade waiting for you.
