Silver Lining

It's been about 1,000 degrees here this week, really brutal. Al Gore would seriously be proud, or terrified, or both.

We're hearing rumblings about it being a little better today. The one fringe benefit we've noticed has been that the large rose bush in our backyard seems to have enjoyed the heat and is now fully in bloom.

I wandered out this morning to get this shot, but believe me when I say the view is even better from inside the house, through the windows, in the air conditioning, holding a drink, with ice.

Lovely rose. All my rose bushes are fully budded just waiting for the sun that's promised tomorrow.

I applaud you for linking to An Inconvenient Truth, a most excellent movie about the most important issue of our time.

Come see the video at my blog for June 12. It's for dads like you...

Wow, it's scary isn't it? The weather in Paris veers from rain and having to have the heating on (in June!) to heatwave and old ladies dying the next day. We need Al!
