The dreaded Heat of July

Usually July slams me in the face with a force of heat that makes me cringe and beg for mercy. I start counting the days until fall. But, this year, we have had a reprieve - it has been beautiful. In the 70s. The way summer should be.
The nests from all the birds seem to be empty, the baby bunnies and squirrels are old enough to be hard to distinguish from their parents - and everything is lush and green as mother nature has given us blessed rain this year. Still, I hold my breath. The lash of heat can descend any day.
Last Sunday Ric took photos of the Super Moon over the city - from the rise tot he west it was peaceful and cool and actually made KC look fun and big! The clouds performed a dance as they gracefully flitted filling in the face and changing every few minutes. Even in the midst of the city there are so many parts of nature that survive our intrusion.

Some days it is hard to see the delights. In the midst of the the strife of life - hard to take that moment to feel nature buzzing around us. Heres  hoping you have a few moments this week to just enjoy the sights around you.
