    1. I agree Steve! Most of the year it’s pretty awesome. This August is probably one for the record books with regards to heat. I’m ready to move on 🌞 But once rains come, flowers bloom!

    1. Thank you! Sadly because of lack of rain we aren’t seeing as many flowers this spring. However, anytime we get rain new flowers pop up so I remain hopeful!
