The bunches of grapes seem more plentiful this year than in recent years.
The grass has stopped growing with the heat and lack of water, but the weeds in the yard have not, sending up flower stalks all over. I will have to get the lawnmower out soon and mow them all down. The ground is like concrete and what grass there is (was) is withered and brown. It will all come back with the rains, but I'm in no hurry for that, hoping that the summer weather continues for a while.
