Turning Up the Temperature

FOUND IN: Garden Design on August 10, 2012

Step outside to a world dusted with early morning showers. No complaints, as August is a relief from the previous month's dry spell. Life in this jungle is surging. The combination of heat and wet gives limited access as the flora responds. I need a machete, making my way with early morning coffee.  Even the puppies balk at pushing through the wet foliage.

 

Animal life continues to celebrate in the 3 day rain. Cicadas hum, tree frogs croon and hummingbirds flutter with the sound of thunder in the background. It is a noisy place.

 

A dark cloud approaches. Spanish moss takes root on my nose. There will be wet feet again.
