Happy Summer Solstice, everyone. One of my favorite days of the year! It feels like a celebration, this lovely, long day.
And yes, I know that there is a self-started redbud tree in my flower bed. Right next to the sidewalk, so it can't stay.
The past few days I've done some early morning weeding and planting since it's been a little less warm. This morning I got an email from Duke Energy saying that I can expect my bill next month to be $33 higher than last month since it's been so hot. Of course I know that mine will be more than that, since last month I didn't have the ac on at all.
