A second spring

Mullein flower tips

August dew ushers

second spring


I spotted these flowering Mullein tips this morning.  From a distance they look like a splash of gold.  It has felt like a second spring around here lately.  Sprouts of green grass are emerging from the brown carpet, small flowers are blooming where growth  had halted in the dry heat, and seeds I recently planted are sending up shoots.  Just a few rains have helped, and my personal theory is that cooler nights releasing moisture from the hot daytime air make a big difference for plants.  Our mornings are very dewy.
