We’re up for a mini heatwave today and tomorrow. So the ACs are running and we’ve planned indoor activities for ourselves. Meanwhile, gentle watering of the parched lawn in the early morning is clearly a delight for the birds. They chirp and flit through the arcing sprinkler. Later, I will turn on the irrigation and the worms will have their own party. I long for a rainy day, a deep soaking, puddles, dripping eves, cooled air. Oh yes!
