Spring, unfortunately, has run its course in KC, and it's already in the upper 90s, with heat indices in the 100+ range. Today I was downloading some photos that I've taken recently, including some plants in my own yard, as well as Lorne & Edna's, my neighbors up on the corner. They are incredible gardeners—their yard is the jewel of the neighborhood! Most of these flowers are gone now. Their temporary nature makes you appreciate them that much more.
