Saturday and Sunday brought high winds to my part of the US – lots of trees knocked over and branches down. Thankfully, only one 22′ branch from one of my trees fell to the ground without hitting anything or anyone. The temp was down in the 40’s a big dive from the 70 degree weather of a few days before.
It was 70 degrees and the sun was shining on Monday when I took my visiting cousin to Forest Park – the large park in St. Louis City. I consider myself fortunate to live just outside of a city where the Art Museum, History Museum, Science Center and Zoo – all part of Forest Park – are free to enter and enjoy. We walked all around the park. We enjoyed the Grand Basin and watched folks paddling the boats under the bridge from where we stood. He is an athletic type and one of the only people I have met that can match my fast-paced walk.
Tuesday was rainy and not quite as warm, and tonight we are supposed to be getting another storm with high winds. So… is it too much to ask for two days in a row of beautiful weather? Two days for the ever rising grass to dry off so I can cut it without clogging my mower? Two days of sun to help my plants grow?
