We often take a picture of corn on the 4th of July because we were brought up with the saying "knee high by the 4th of July." If the corn was knee high by the 4th of July, it meant the farmers would be able to get their crop in before the first frost. So on the way to my sister's house for a family get together today, I had Ernie stop and pose in front of a field of corn.
Yes, it's still hot. And no, we still haven't had any rain, unless you count the 47 drops we had yesterday morning. It didn't even get the sidewalk wet, let alone clean the bird poop off it. We continue to water the garden and flowers, morning and evening.
And a glass of wine on the patio isn't much fun unless you include a fan!
