Poetry Sunday: Summer Wind by William Cullen Bryant
Our high temperature on Saturday was 103 degrees Fahrenheit. Sunday's predicted high is 104, as is Monday's. Most days recently have exceeded the century mark. I don't remember when we last had rain but it has been weeks and we have a very slight chance for it this week. And yet most of the tough old plants that I have in my garden are thriving with very little help from us since we are under water restrictions. How do they face that blistering sun day after day and still manage to look fresh?
To sum up, our weather at the moment is miserable. There is no relief in sight for us. Even the summer wind is hot.
