Heatwave!

Actually, we are now having our 3rd big heatwave of the summer! This is an unusual year for this part of Oregon. We had a dry winter, and now a very hot summer! Not much rain in sight! Mornings are for watering. Afternoons are spent indoors, trying to stay as cool as possible (nice for reading and knitting, though). The grass is completely yellow, and won’t return to the lovely green we enjoy until the rains return. The rhododendrons are stressed. The weeds are flourishing. Yesterday it reached 100 degrees. Today is supposed to reach 104 degrees! I miss the gray and the rain!
