Spent the day on Lake Tillery. I'm fast approaching Lobster Red. It's been hot the past few days like it is in July. In the garden center, the thermometers near the registers topped 100 degrees. The official number was 98 on Sunday. We all got a break yesterday. The garden enjoyed nearly 3/4" of rain that started around 6pm. It was windy at first and then the rain fell in sheets. There's a 30% chance of rain everyday for the rest of the summer it seems.
The stargazers are scorched in the heat. The paper-like blooms of the hibiscus are still wet this morning. The grasses are starting to spike.
It's 70 degrees with light high clouds. More rain possible this evening. I need to pick some beans this morning. I might not get a chance when I get back from the lake.
