The calendar says it's July 19. The thermometer thinks it's October. It's 61 degrees. Overnight, we dipped into the middle upper 50s. I woke up this morning with all the covers drawn tight against my chin. The cat was curled up against my legs.
Outside, the four o'clocks are still open, seemingly unaware that it's morning. Their scent is faint, but lingering. A single datura bloom nearby adds to the mix. Still damp from the rain Friday night, the soil has a fresh clean scent too.
The morning glories near the gully are taking advantage of the cooler temperatures too.
83 for the high today. Humidity is at 69% and will be falling all day. By 4pm, we should be in the lower 40% range. Yes, in July. In North Carolina.
