Just when I think I cannot stand any more oppressive heat and humidity, Mother Nature gives us a break. A low below 70, humidity also plunged, and I am met with a breath of literally fresh air as I enter the morning to give my pooch's bladder a break. My mood automatically lifts.
I am tired of watering my pots and gardens, tired of fighting the weeds, tired of dead brown plants I had tried to nurture and failed. Yet, what a gift is a morning like this one. Cool with barely a breeze, yet ultimately comfortable. Then another gift from Mother Nature....I spot my first hummingbird of the season. A smile that I share with no one.
