Well, sort of park. We went to the Carlsbad Fair today, an enormous thing with hundreds of vendors, mostly clothing and crafts and soaps and suchlike, with some food and a few artists. Even the crafts weren’t exciting. I think we have street fair fatigue; it all starts looking the same. There was a Republican party booth and a Democratic one; this is *not* a juried show!
However, it was another gorgeous day to be out, and this elegant bloom and its companions graced the park-planted shrubs along the streets. Maybe not exactly parks, but public greenery nevertheless.
The campfire smoke drifts faintly in our still-open windows as we wait for the much-delayed cooler weather that we hope will come. At least we no longer need our air-conditioning! And I’m hopeful we won’t all need attitude reconditioning come Wednesday.
