Crying out for rain and cooler temperatures! What a hellish summer we are experiencing yet again. All of the new three year old blueberry plants I recently planted are scorched. My new baby apple trees are losing leaves. The new growth on my recently purchased avocado tree is toast and our grass is like the kind you find in easter baskets. I could go on and on. Did I mention that I am constantly watering?
This gargoyle photo was taken at Chartres Cathedral on a day-long foray into the Loire Valley; a two hour drive from Paris. Decorative, yet functional, the rain spouts would be a welcome sight functioning around here.
