We have a big circle of pokeberry stalks that come up every year at the edge of the yard. I would get Jerry to cut them all down but the deer eat them so we let them grow. I love to see the berries and the little tiny flowers.
We had a quiet 4th of the July..it was over 100 degrees on our back porch in the shade at 2pm. The son that lives closest to us had plans for a pool party with friends so we did not see him and his wife. The other son lives 3 hours away but we went to see them last weekend to avoid the holiday traffic. It was nice to just stay in the cool air of the house. I did take a short walk around the yard this morning to see what I could get for a blip.

I may venture out to the local festival to see the fireworks tonight..it may get down to bearable temps by then. I can see the wind blowing more now so maybe that will help.
I really like Autumn! Just saying!
