|the tepee is coming along nicely|
|So, I cleared out the front garden, right?|
It must have looked to the neighbors like I sowed weeds.
My "wild flower blend" finally has flowers.

Fireflies in the Garden
Here come real stars to fill the upper skies,
And here on earth come emulating flies,
That though they never equal stars in size,
(And they were never really stars at heart)
Achieve at times a very star-like start.
Only, of course, they can't sustain the part.
-Ironically enough, I haven't run since Monday because of the heat, and now my pool is closed until Monday for the same reason. I was banking on the cool pool today. But, the heat wave is supposed to crack before Monday. I am very pleased with that concept. Low 80s next week. Yes!
