Hot today, but not as bad, I am sure as Colorado. I have been thinking about the people and forests there and in the other states that are burning. So hoping they will get rain and relief sooner than soon.
Walked into the grocery store this morning and all I could smell was strawberries. They must have had a million quarts of the things everywhere. We have been making strawberry daiquiris with fresh strawberries. Tastes so good on the porch in the evening. I don't suppose you can ever get tired of these red gems.
Well, the Japanese beetles have landed. I hate these things with a passion. You never know what they are going to destroy, though they usually wreck havoc with our weeping cherry. One year they ruined the green beans we were growing in the garden, also all the zinnias and the hibiscus. Usually roses are their target, too. But my faithful sparrows in the back garden are making heroic attempts to rid us of the beasties. I don't use chemicals, but I do know there is an organic spray soap-type product that may work.
Staying in the house this afternoon, so books and magazines are on the agenda. I have a bunch of books to tell you about, too; next week.
Got something big happening here on Sunday. Real big! Come visit my blog and you will see.
Have a great Friday.
