Too fucking hot to think. Air conditioning has been broken over a week and repairman can't be arsed to return calls, let alone come fix it. Seen at the bird feeders this week: small flock of sparrows, several mourning doves, and grackles. Currently blooming: violets, zinnias, petunias, marigolds, million bells, moss rose, pansies, pink things and penstemon in the wildflower garden, comfrey, daylilies. Missed most of raspberry season, still some mulberries left but can't do yardwork. Blackberries, crabapples, and apricots have green fruit. Fireflies are active now. Saw bats last night.
