The sweet peas are blooming though they’re a little confused. They don’t know whether to produce long, sturdy stems with deliciously scented blooms or short, stumpy little wisps with rather ambivalent flowers. I blame it on the weather. It was hot for a while but then it cooled off. As I write this, we’re in for a few days of rain. I’m not bothered. Sweet peas love cool, moist weather; the rain keeps the forest fire threat low; and an indoor day or two means more time to curl up with a book.
Here’s what I’m reading this month:
At the gym: Leaving Time by Jodi Picoult
On the Kindle: Anything for You by Kristan Higgins
Beside the Pond: A Mother’s Reckoning by Sue Klebold
