Fireworks are flashy, but

Oh my, the moon was absolutely stunning last night... find it rising, tonight, wherever you might be...

The weather's been outstanding here this past week, hot and dry and sunny and practically perfect... enchanting breezy evenings under the waning moon... A welcome change from weeks of rain rain and more rain, and everything growing is loving it.  Amazingly, all the tomatoes I transplanted last Sunday--and which I have not given a single drop of water all week!--have been standing tall in the heat, appearing not thirsty in the least... Peppers and cabbages, likewise, looking fine... I've killed some others over the past couple months, but my attitude for this gardening season is if there are any plants here that can't stand a bit of abuse and neglect, they may as well check out now.  Anyone who makes the first cut might have a chance at getting a little more special attention, but I'm not going out of my way to help anybody along.  (And there are some standouts, 'em.)  Anyway, they're all in need a deep drink soon, but there's no sense in scalding them at this point in the day, and in any case they're just going to have to wait a little longer.  I've got a new cute suit, a soft white underbelly and a whole lot of sun(burn) headed my way today... Ciao.
