It’s hot and dry.

Here in the Mid-Atlantic states we are in the dry August-September season. This is our typical dry season with the exception of a hurricane or tropical storm. Many broad-leaved deciduous stubs will drop their leaves during this drought period.

But it is fig season!


And blooming ginger season!


With temperatures near 100f we find activities to stay indoors!

Last weekend we hit the museums!

North Carolina Museum of Art:

A 1920s menora


A 1700s icon screen 


The Rodin sculpture garden


The North Carolina Museum of History


Quailridge Book Sellers


And there is always time for an iced mocha latte at Cup A Joe


And a night cap at Ruby Deluxe


And the Tropicals in the garden enjoy the heat and humidity! The bananas are lush!


And if I don’t leave a window cracked in the Fiat it’s a little warm in there at the end of the day!


I am ready for Fall!
