EscapePosted: August 9, 2013
This week has been H-O-T hot . . . like surface-of-the-sun hot. It has also been unbearably humid and we have not had rain in forever. Please do not ask me to explain how we can be so hot and humid and yet so dry all at the same time. Such an explanation is beyond my capabilities. As a result of our miserable weather conditions, this week has also been B-O-R-I-N-G boring . . . as in we have done absolutely nothing since our watermelon fun last Saturday. Mommy and I went for an abbreviated walk on Monday morning, but after that the walks were put on hold. Mommy spends all her time watering plants and moving the hose and sprinkler from one spot to another. I leave that to her because, after all, I am wearing a fur coat and, apparently, I have more sense than my mommy: I choose to remain in the air-conditioned comfort of my home.
So what does all of this mean for you, my loyal reader? It means that I do not have any of my own adventures to share with you today. It also means that it is time to take a mental escape from summer and go back to the cool and refreshing beauty of spring. In April, my humans spent a glorious afternoon at Houmas House Plantation and Gardens in Darrow, Louisiana, about 30 minutes from our house. Unfortunately, I was not invited to join them; but, fortunately for you, my mommy took lots and lots of pictures. I am pleased to share her pictures of the Houmas House gardens with you. Enjoy the escape!
