Hope you all have a nice holiday planned. We are staying home. Quite a difference from last year when we had a short stretch of 100+ temps within a longer stretch of 90+. We had a downpour yesterday so I don't think I will have to water anything today--maybe tomorrow. I plant to cut some herbs for drying today and trim some other plants. The entire patio is quickly moving toward jungle status. We found a cypress vine flower this morning. I have also noticed that the bugs really don't like tansy. None of the plants near it have any signs of bugs eating them while several away from it do. I am making some tansy sun tea to spray elsewhere in the garden.
The government snooping saga continues. Evidently these programs are long-standing. Mom and I had a bit of a sarcastic laugh because she remembers when the one program was instituted--photographing all the mail going through the postal service. Why sarcastic, you wonder? Because it was sold as a means of tracing lost mail--no more lost checks or packages. Right!! Didn't work all that well given we each recall losing some of our letters over the years and they were never seen again.
A couple of blogger noted that the time around July 4th is light on news and blogging. I guess they are right.
