It's just been too muggy and too hot to spend much time outdoors.
Except for a quick check on my Surprise Lilies and lamenting the weeds that
proliferated thanks to the most recent rain,
I've pretty much stayed inside.
This morning, the ladies who gathered at my table for our
"Home Connection" agreed that the summer has been about
as bad as winter -- as far as not being nice to be outside!
It didn't stop me from bringing a little of the outside inside though.
Here, Rose of Sharon, Russian sage and some black-eyed Susans.
