After three days of heat a thunder storm with massive rain this afternoon. The smell of rain on the hot patio stones overwhelming. Roses and lavender in bloom, sage and estragon almost up to my shoulders, a handful of plums on the little tree, first raspberries blushing, delphinium ready to blossom, taller than me. Strawberries next week if the sun keeps up. Rucola and lettuce ready for harvest.
