Last night was night one of having the AC on. And something like 30 inches of snow are expected less than one thousand miles north of here. A yikes-ian contrast.
Meanwhile (hey, this word was around before Stephen Colbert!), we got a tad of precip overnight…as these Mahonia berries(?) show.
And the Japanese maples are responding to the heat and growing queeeeeeekleeee.
Rather taken with the fragment of lichen on this spiderwort. Nice shadows, too.
