Dog Days of Summer

I can't believe the heat and humidity already cropping up in Central Iowa. The last few days we've had a lot of walking back and forth - to the park, to the store, to friends' houses - and I am feeling the heat. Thankfully it wasn't so bad this morning, and I plucked all those crazy June weeds, but geez. Will I be up for that a month from now? Time will tell.

Now all I need to do is figure out what to plant there. :P You know? That same thing I was busy doing earlier this year, and parts of last year, too? I think I might fill it all in with glass beads and fish figurines, and pretend we're growing seaweed.
