I'm doing great!  You can keep the heat and just a little bit of the rain.  Garden is loving it all though.

After the tornado scare (it touched down a mile from us with F3 force), we went through a heatwave then followed by rain, rain, and rain. This is after one of the driest springs in the area.
With the rain, the wildflowers are coming out. These are taken at the abandoned railroad track by my workplace.

Schen, it's amazing what the change of the weather does.  While it may not suit us, there are some plants that take full advantage of it.  Our areas have been full of wild flowers!! The fleabane is beautiful and I hope you munched on a few of those dewberrys!!

The wild berries are tiny but very flavorful. The rain stopped and was followed by another heatwave which is supposed to end this afternoon after some severe thunderstorms. This year's weather is a real rollercoaster ride.

I finally made it to this infamous Humboldt Park Lagoon. It became a sensation two years ago when an alligator was spotted in the water. How did an alligator more than 5 foot long got up to Chicago is still anybody's guess.

Beautiful, Chen!!  As for the alligator, perhaps someone finally got tired of it as a pet. I remember those alligators being sold at TG&Y when I was a girl.
