It looks like a divine intervention

It looks like a divine intervention
The heatwave from earlier this week has cooled to a more bearable temperature today, for which I am very glad. I am sitting beside a window here and there is a cool breeze blowing, keeping things cool and fresh. The sky is overcast and it actually looks like it might rain. I’m sure the plants could use it.

For the last week and a half I’ve been looking after my landlord’s garden while they’ve been away. It’s been a nice experience to do this, but I am amazed at how time consuming it can be just to water things. Since it’s been so very hot I’ve been out there every evening giving the plants, flowers, and veggies out back, as much water as I can. They don’t have a sprinkler so it means I have to stand there sprinkling everything by hand. I feel like I know the garden so much better now, and I am glad to contribute to the survival of this lovely green space that surrounds my home and gives me so much enjoyment.
