I'm the type of person who likes to get involved in things, especially when it relates to music and gardening. Ever since I took an early retirement, I've added quite a few things to my agenda. It makes for a busy lifestyle. I enjoy these activities, or I wouldn't participate in them. I've made many good friends, and I've had lots of fun.

This year has become the Summer It Rained. To most of you, this would not be unusual. Summer means thunderstorms and cloudbursts, right? Well, that's not how summer usually goes around here.
But not this year. It has rained and rained and then rained some more. Streets often flood, crops tend to rot in the field, and the sun rarely shines. This year, the dark skies threaten, then cut loose with torrents of rain.
The red admiral butterflies are fairly common, and have been visiting in droves. But many other butterflies visit me here, much to my delight, along with numerous other pollinators.
As I'm writing this post, yet another storm is building, and heavy rains are imminent. Yes indeed, it is the Summer It Rained. Every summer I wish for more rain, but I guess I'll have to be more specific in the future.
