It's so hot! And dry. Very different from recent summers. Dropped in at Becker's to take advantage of the sale on annuals; got some shopworn pale yellow marigolds for the triangle in front of the house (because only one zinnia seed out of two plantings of three packages sprouted) and promptly got them in the ground the second we got home. Also got two impatiens and some catnip. The catnip is shopworn too -- but I couldn't find any earlier in the season. (TB/TC loves it.) The impatiens are still beautiful, will plant them tomorrow.
Had soft ice cream for only the second time this season. If eggplant is the Giuliano family vegetable, then soft ice cream is our official dessert.
