Snapshot . . . . green

It's late July in Oklahoma and we still have green in our landscapes
We are confused -- normally the color of the month is brown (and crunchy)

I for one, could  get used to this very easily !

Four days of rain and cooler temps - - - 
a teasing preview of Autumn ? 

One can only dream/hope !

Summer Snapshot . . . . crepe myrtles

In the heat of the summer, crepe myrtle blooms
give us something to rest our eyes on --
( a pleasant relief from our burned-to-a-crisp lawns! )
Yes, they are very pretty --
but, still not enough to make me like Summer !

Summer Snapshot

I do not like Summer  -- or hot weather or days and days without even a hint of rain.
Which means I'm outside every evening -- watering and watering some more.
And, I'm rewarded -- with the a burst of tiger lily blooms.

 But, I still do not like Summer !!!
