Summer Flees

This summer (as always) has been unpredictable. Starting back in April we had many, many days of above average temperatures. One day in July we even hit 81 degrees!! (That is a scorcher in Anchorage.) By the middle of July our lawn was looking very sad. We needed water and cooler temperatures. Despite all the fine weather, we only got the pool out once. Between our summer guests and the bee/hornet/yellow jacket problem it just didn't happen.

Then the rain clouds and rain came. It has rained 15 of the last 21 days. It is cold. It is damp. Our family has had the flu. The lawn looks great, but the flowers have drown. 

The forecast is for more of the same. ARG!
