I wish I had a window in my office! The thunder is so loud I can hear it right through the wall almost like I’m standing outside. Loud and low-down.
It’s been very rainy this summer. We were just talking about how weird it is to have to mow your lawn in August. Well, not “we.” But I nodded along like I had any great experience with whether lawn mowing in August is usually necessary for Nashville home owners.
Not only is this my first August as a homeowner, the Butcher mows the lawn.
I took a picture for you this morning, which, obviously, you’ll have to wait until Sunday to see, but finally things are kind of working with the bottle tree. It’s taken all summer, but the morning glories are wrapping all the way up the pole and curling along some of the bottles. It’s not quite the organic pile I had imagined but finally this morning there were dark, blue violet flowers among the bottles.
Also, I think I’ll plant Mexican Sunflowers again because they do seem to be the one plant that bloomed this year that does attract the one butterfly in my yard. But that butterfly is a Monarch, so I kind of feel like, well, if you’re only going to have one butterfly, it might as well be that one.
