On a brief ride around the Evergreen area last week, I was surprised to see so many wildflowers blooming. Many seemed a bit earlier than usual. I believe this is due to the exceptionally warm weather and rain in early June.
Late June had very little rain, but the Fourth of July brought a late-afternoon torrential shower, so it is once more hot and humid. This is not my favorite weather as it leaves me feeling hot, sticky and short of breath.
