In full bloom
I love long Summer walks. Okay, this isn't the beginning of a dating profile, it's just that there's nothing like being in the warm, fresh air in late afternoon. I try to walk every day and this time I decided to stop and smell the flowers with a faint whiff of jealousy. At home my dead petunias hang like twigs over a hard plastic pot. Oh how I wish these were my gardens.

The warming weather has made the flowers pop. A neighbor even mowed his grass for the first time this season. I walked around the yard to survey what survived the winter.  I'm pleased that most of my plants are making a comeback.
