The Week in My World 9/10/10
It’s finally slightly cooler but the lushness of summer still abounds with prominent profusions of wildflowers at every turn. The fruits of the various local cacti are huge due to a strong monsoon—it rained steadily until a few days ago, but today the humidity dropped about 30 points to 36%. Locusts are crossing the roads, probably for mating. The “lawn” is knee-high again—they’re not kidding when they tell you the Arizona lawnmower is the weed whacker.
Each day comes bearing its own gifts. Untie the ribbons.
