[Dog Days is the name for the most sultry period of summer, from about July 3 to Aug. 11.]
… makes me long for a bit of refreshing rain:
This was a miniature rose I planted a couple of years ago. It didn’t make it through the dog days of summer because we were gone for a vacation, and my brother who was supposed to be watering the plant had forgotten to do so. By the time we returned, the rose was beyond rescue. But at least I have a picture of it basking in the freshness from a round of gentle summer rain.
For those who are enjoying or not enjoying the dog days of summer, it won’t be long now! :)
