Today gave an uneventful walk as I went early and it is a Sunday. Few people were out and all was quiet. I noticed that the ant hills that had been active were dormant once again. The flowering cactus has finished its showy stage and the grass flowers have completely disappeared. Most of the roses are finished. Flowers now are mostly in boxes on people’s decks. It has been so hot and dry. I wonder what will happen if it rains? A rebirth? I hope we get the opportunity to see soon.
