Not much bloggable the last few days. Still dealing with the stove in the middle of the kitchen floor, so we grilled out on the back patio yesterday and enjoyed the lovely August weather. I would have never thought the adjective "lovely" could modify any Southern summer month, but it's been wonderfully pleasant the last week or so with mid to high 80's and only slight humidity. The open pasture to the west of our farmhouse allows glorious breezes and stunning sunset sight lines, so we whiled away our dinner hour through the twilight.
The nice weather and abundance of rain has been good for the plants. Here is the Cleopatra Canna:
And the wild Passion Flower vine:
And a small sampling of our Sweet 100 cherry tomatoes (and a few random Roma):
