Too hot to post!

Too hot to garden! Too hot to breathe! Not too hot for somebody in my house (not accusing anyone in particular, mind you) of busting some branches off the big-ass coleus beside the back door while taking out the trash. (I will mention there are only two other people in the house, and they’re both male and accident-prone …) Anyway, when life gives you lemons, make lemonade! Look how pretty the busted leaves look in a vase. I never would have thought to do this if somebody hadn’t broken my plant.

And I bet they’ll last longer than flowers do in this awful heat. Supposed to hit 100 today! Sticking close to the fan …

      Bwaa-ha-ha-ha-ha! Come the long nuclear winter, I and my offspring will survive because we’ve been hardened by exposure to the elements, while you and yours will wilt and die!
