After a rather mild and rainy first half of the summer, the heat is back in good ol’ Texas and the grass in our backyard is turning yellow faster than I care to water it -I’ve always found it pointless to grow grass in a desert, if you live in a desert, just own it and grow cacti, but that’s just me.
Our front yard, on the other hand, is more shaded and the plants there are spared the harsh afternoon sun and are doing quite well. The one below is by the front door and has tiny, hairy purple flowers that welcome me home every day after school. It is dear to my heart, one of the many little things that bring a smile on my lips. I hope it brings one on yours too.
