A Day in the Purple Snow
But Purple Snow?
We are treated to it every year like clockwork. It's the prettiest time of year out in the backyard. Somehow... in all this dreadful heat, the crape myrtles are spectacular. They are such a welcome sight. Especially when so many plants and trees are parched, droopy, or have simply given up the fight under the blazing sun.
Every day we see reports of wildfires raging out of control. Heartbreaking stories of people and animals who have been forced to flee from their homes.
The weatherman says we have a decent chance for rain this week. We really need it.
But, until then...
Henry is doing just fine is his purple snow.
