The sunlight speaks. And it's voice is a bird:
It glitters half-guessed half seen half-heard
Above the flower bed. Over the lawn ...
A flashing dip and it is gone.
And all it lends to the eye is this --
A sunbeam giving the air a kiss."

Must have hit the 90's F today so I was hiding inside as soon I was done watering. The tomatoes are just going gang busters, with all of them flowering. The lettuce is as tall as I think it will get before it bolts, and the oregano had caught on and flourishing. It is so lovely to use fresh herbs from the garden when I cook...makes all the difference in taste.
I just finished my spinach drying session and have a full container for cooking. 'Bout time to start on my rhubarb, so I can freeze it.

There is an Air Force guy driving from McChord to Ft Lewis, and an Army guy driving from Ft Lewis to McChord. In the middle of the night with no other cars on the road, they hit each other head on, and both cars go flying off in different directions.
The Air Force guy manages to climb out of his car and surveys the damage. He looks at his twisted car and says,…”Man, I am really lucky to be alive!”
Likewise the Army guy scrambles out of his car and looks at his wreckage. He too says to himself,…“I can’t believe I survived this wreck!”
The Army guy walks over to the Air Force guy and says,“Hey man, I think this is a sign from God that we should put away our petty differences and live as friends instead of archrivals.”
The Air Force guy thinks for a moment and says, “You know, you’re absolutely right. We should be friends.
So the Army guy pops open his trunk and finds a full, unopened bottle of Jack Daniels.
He says to the Air Force guy, “I think this is another sign from God that we should toast to our new found understanding and friendship,” and hands him the bottle.
The Air Force guy replies, “You’re darn right.” and he grabs the bottle and starts sucking down Jack Daniels. After putting away nearly half the bottle the Air Force guy hands it back to the Army guy and says,“Your turn.”
The Army guy twists the cap back on the bottle and says,“Nahhhh, I think I’ll wait for the police and the MP’s to come.” (Sorry, Uncle Paul!)
