September in Arizona is different than the rest of the world. Labor day means the end of summer to most but for us we are still averaging over 100 degrees every day! So last week when what was probably the last of the monsoon storms rolled through we got to sit outside (without sweating) visiting with friends and looking forward to October. Then as they always do about a week after a good rain the Texas sage in our yard exploded this morning and brought a smile to my face. YES there is still life and renewal in one hundred and nine degrees! I just love this plant!
