I’m in a bit of a state of disbelief about out weather. It’s been raining for three days – IN FREAKIN’ SEPTEMBER!!! What’s up with that?? Big, wet, sloppy drops drenching anyone who ventures outside, in mere minutes. It would seem perfectly normal if it was about two months from now, but September here is usually still rather hot and very dry.
I’m not complaining. Not at all! I wanted to play outside, but had a lot of work to do, so the timing of the rain showers helped me summon the resolve I needed to dutifully stay by my desk. It feels nice to not have to worry about watering. Everything is so effortlessly lush and green, thanks to this wonderful, premature, autumnal gift! Mostly green, it seems, but then there is this – an explosion of tiny purple fuzz balls. I have to say I’m quite taken with it. It hasn’t succumbed to the abundant rain either. It holds its little flowers high and proud, as it brightens this otherwise gray week. Enchanté, sweet Hewitt!
