My grandmother used to chuckle that the Devil was beating his wife when the sun comes out during a rain shower. That’s not what was happening here this morning, however. It was the interplay of light and shadow through showers from my oscillating sprinkler. This new oscillator covers quite a wide area from the back garden fence where the fleece flower is just coming into bloom . . .
. . . all the way to the courtyard, too. It is 7:30, plenty of time for the cushions and pillows to dry out; the fabric is “Sunbrella.” I am drinking Starbucks “Caramel” coffee. Not sure I like it, but it was the only one left on the shelf. Later I’ll do a bit of shopping to replenish the kitchen pantry and, of course, buy more plants . . .
When all is said and done, I’ll “plant” little American flags on wooden sticks into a pot of flowers for Memorial Day / Flag Day / Independence Day.
