Summer Slump

Every year I plant the same summer annuals.  Vinca. 

They miraculously survive the Texas summer heat as long as you give them a gallon of water every other day.  I always choose the red and white.  They look great in red planters sitting on top of two large green ceramic elephants that my father bought in Vietnam that guard our house on the back porch. 

The white variety is really the prettiest especially up close.

Actually I just wanted to post a picture to replace the July 4th American Flag.

The truth is...

I am in a summer slump.
It happens every August when it gets really hot!
I don't feel like doing anything.
My To Do list keeps getting longer.
And I can't bring myself to blog much.
My daughter is in San Diego.
My best bud from work left and went to work at another hospital.
I have a fever blister the size of Texas on my lip.

I will snap out of it in a couple of weeks when September rolls around and the promise of fall is on the horizon.
