The hot, dry weather is taking a toll on some of the plants in our neighborhood. The pokeweed growing along the edge of the field has taken on autumnal colors, maybe because it's sun-scorched and thirsty. I like the bright pink colors that emerge in its leaves.

Some plants have fared worse. On my daily walk last night with the dogs I noticed many that are withered, brittle or browning. Here's hoping they bounce back when the rains return!

Too bad you can't take some of our afternoon showers back to your area!
