It has been hot the past week or so in my corner of the blog-o-sphere. Yesterday evening it cooled off enough (87° F) to do some weeding in the backyard. Maggie would have preferred a walk but the weeds would soon take over if I did not pull them out. One would think that with the dry conditions in California, along with triple digit temperatures, nothing would grow that was not watered? Somehow the weeds still grow as the plants wilt. None of this seems to bother Maggie, for as you can see, she is quite happy.
