We have a Severe Thunderstorm Warning and a Tornado Watch in effect until 9 p.m. I'm hearing rumbles and it's 88' F according to my porch thermometer, so there's a break to this miserable swelter in sight. Ah, sweet relief... I hope. You never know around here. Sometimes it'll pour and still not clear the air. This area has become Floridian, somehow.
But I have to say the gardens are looking lovely this year. My tomato plants are already over a foot tall and the roses are budded, just in time for June. A tad early, but looking very healthy.
Ah, more big rumbling... and sirens already. Hope the power doesn't go out... There goes the cat, and here comes the rain. Yay!
