I got home and start working. I trimmed up a lot of the lantana, cut back some of the sego palm fronds, pulled up the casualties of the season so far and weeded a bit. Now for the fun part! I began to plot out where my new darlings are going to be planted. And then the sun came out.
Now, I am a trooper. When I decide I am going to work in the garden, very few things can stop me. But today I was quickly defeated. The insidious combination of the rays beating down on me, the heat attacking me and the humidity surrounding me in it's close, wet clutches sent me running for the loveliness that is air conditioning.
I haven't given up on my plans completely. I am cooling off while waiting for the sun to go behind the house so the front yard is shady. Then I will be out there again.
