Clouds. Think of the cooling shadows of summer which benevolent Nature spreads over her darling forests and gardens – summer shadows of wonderful depth and brilliancy like the wings of a mother bird over her young.
~ John Muir
Clouds! Yes there are finally clouds in the sky and judging from horizon there are many more are on the way.
Free! Free I say. I can finally step outside and breathe in the hot, fresh air of an early taste of summer. Let no more the confines of these four walls hold me captive.
Reprieve! My garden was given a reprieve from the scorching rays of the sun, granting my plants a fighting chance at surviving the elements in what can be a hard, cold world (hard, hot world in this case).
I will never again take for granted the luxury of a shadow stretching across the afternoon sky or the cool breeze that always seems to follow.
Thank you dear Gardening Gods, I am grateful for your gift, and as always — Simply Grateful.
