Cooling Sunday Heat

We came back from Iowa, Corporal Dorin, the Princess, and I, to find the hot Texas sun had been scorching everything since the day we left.

The watermelon patch is now occupied only by brown and burned stems.

The grass is sick yellow with sparsely spread spots of green.

And my solitary sunflower…

…has gone down for the count.

She’s drooping and wilting and ill.
And her magnificent blossoms are falling apart, losing precious petals.

I added water to the yard. Hopefully the plants will come back. But the heat is no friend to us anymore.
