The Great American Desert has become the Great American Jungle, thanks to all the rain we've had. The prairie is a-bloom everywhere. Many of the places where the dogs and I used to walk are now all but impassable. I have managed to cut a narrow tunnel to my mailbox through 10-foot-high sunflowers and horse-weed for the mailman. Weed growth in my garden is just as spectacular, unfortunately. This has been a summer to remember.
(The picture was taken on a neighbor's place, during my ramble yesterday.)
