The weekend weather was a mixed bag of clouds and sun, but temperatures stayed in the mid-70 range, just right for patio time. I sat in patches of shade to read, knit, sip a bit of tea, and completely relax. The sky was beautiful at all times; the sunrises, the sunsets and every hour in between, as clouds wove colors of gray, lavender, pink and salmon through the shades of blue.
Last Sunday, thunder rumbled and for a short time rain danced in the streets, but the weather never quite forced us in. The occasional, and short lived rain, covered the hosta leaves with pearls and freshened the air.
The greens of the natural world feed my soul, the jewels left by a summer storm a crowning glory.
