I have never looked so forward to cooler weather in my life as I have over this past couple months. Missouri has had the hottest, driest summer since the 1950's, I believe. Triple digits for weeks and weeks with almost no rain.(except for a half inch in about two months or more) The ponds are drying up and the trees and grass are dying. I feel so badly for the poor wildlife. We've been keeping the birdbath full each day and they have become quite dependent on it.
I created this piece for a previous hot summer. Cool breezes, please come our way once more.
