If you like dangerous blue sky, drifting fluffy clouds, a cool breeze with temperatures in the mid to upper seventies Fahrenheit, then it was a wasn't a bad day. But if you're something like a Moon Flower seedling who might have been casually dragged outside to harden off and get ready for the great adventure, then today was pretty much a nightmare of withering, leaf scorching, blinding sun and high, desiccating wind.
Invariably a gardener feels the burden of guilt, he makes soothing noises,
promises a dribble of water and the sirens blare as he rushes Moon Flowers
toward dappled shade. But always best to remember that in times of high emotion
"rushing" a tray of Moon Flowers anywhere is an error. A person could trip over
a watering can and fall, which does nothing at all to promote a Moon Flower's
confidence in the quality of her caretaker or her prospects for the future.
