Today was mostly a working day, watching the garden from the office window. The dry season has officially started but is not excessively warm; the house retains cool nighttime temperatures.
I came down yesterday by way of Liberty Road and North Camanche Parkway, along the high road above Camanche Reservoir. From that height the road yields a panoramic view of the reservoir, spectacular and worth a little slow traffic in the village. The alternate route to the ranch was no longer in terms of time.
Awol dropped out of a tree to greet me and scared me half to death. I trimmed the dead blooms from Mike’s roses and supplemented the water to his tomatoes and cucumber. I appreciate the long lingering days that allow watering and weeding the front garden at sunset.
Full sun 3.21, Sunset 8.15
