Everything is so green right now!
In a few weeks, once we get timid-August, most likely we'll be seeing some brown around town. It seems as though every year our window boxes look great...until the middle of August. There is something about the relentless heat of August that seems to suck the life out of plants and grass in the dog days, and even the well-watered lawns south of the highway sometimes show the wear and tear of late summer with a random brown patches. The lush greens of July give way to the beiges of August and we know it's time to get ready for the new school year.
But today, everything, the bushes, the ornamental grasses, the lawns and flowers, all a rich, dark green. Almost Ireland-like. Another Emerald Isle. And it looks so nice.
