Another HOT day !
...another very hot day shaping up here...already past 80 on my screened back porch and probably will reach 100 before the day's end!
Did I ever say how much I dislike summers here?? Well I do!
Early spring fills me with grand ideas of the perfect rose and flower garden but by this time...just the beginning of summer...I realize how hopeless all my plans are! I'm defeated by the relentless heat!
And just to survive- mostly indoors- I pay a huge electric bill! Would you believe $457.00!!! I just got that one yesterday-the higest ever!
LOL- OK- will catch you guys later when I'm in a better mood!
a poem from last summer...
Little spider, I’ll let it be-
this woven web of gossamer lace.
Threads of softest gold, I see…
just barely there, but in their place!
In my garden’s corner, here,
you’ll be safe, not in the way,
of garden hose, or trimming shears.
So in this spot, I hope you’ll stay.
I see mosquitoes, hanging there…
entrapped within your web of gold.
And there are bugs, almost your size!
I wonder how you are so bold!
Some are consumed. Just outer shells,
identifying what was there!
How strong, your trap of silky gold,
that has the look of angel hair!
