Monsoon season

Don't know what the weather's like where you are, but around here we've been getting torrential downpours almost every other day, and frequently multiple times a day. Our one section of garden is nearly 2 inches deep in water, with enough of it moving at one point that it shoved a stone paver nearly four feet.

The oddest part of it all is that peoples' lawns are green. Around here, usually grass goes brown and door-matty by the middle of July, but this year everything's doing its level best to spawn a rain forest jugle. Which then requires an awful lot of weeding, even when you have chickens quite eager to 'help'.

( to tell it's time to hit the lights and go to sleep: you keep losing the beginning of a sentence by the time you reach the end. If you manage even that much. Hope you all are doing better.)

Cool, grey and humid with just the odd shower here in the UK. By the way, I love your doodles, just am usually too sleepy to comment.
Well, apparently on Tuesday I fell asleep while writing this post, so you're in good company there. ;)
Yeah, same here. We live in the same part of the country. I'm sick of the rain and I'm sick of the heat!
Dry opening, wet ending of summer.

All the lawns turned green and abruptly all the garden flowers remembered how to GROW.
Yup. I'm slowly beating back the thistles that ate our side garden while we were away on vacation.
