We have company this week — old friends from California and their two grown children. We will be busy, I'm sure. I don't know how much blogging I'll do. So for today, just a picture:
The pond outside our back gate is drying up, and it has been almost completely taken over by the invasive jussie weed, also called Ludwigia or, in English, "water primrose." It might be hard to tell it's a pond by looking at my picture. I don't know if the village has any plans to do anything about eradicating the weed and returning the pond to its previous state.
P.S. It's 6:45 a.m. and guess what! It's raining. We're having a little thundershower, with just the softest rumblings from the sky. Now I have to hope the weather clears by noon or so because we want to take our visitors out and show them some of the sights.
