During a respite from the rain

I know I've been talking about the weather too much.

I'm like that person in the elevator or another confined space that you have absolutely nothing to talk about with, so one of us brings up the weather and suddenly are forced to talk and hypothesize about the topic that is usually at the back of people's minds unless they have an upcoming event. Do you think it's going to stop raining soon? I heard that its rained more than double what it typically rains for this month. 

And so on.

It rapidly comes to the point where you are wishing that you hadn't brought up the weather in the first place. But had you brought it up? You can't even remember at this point, and are uncomfortably trying to think of ways to get out of the situation. 

Why, oh why don't elevators have more accessible escape routes?

So yes, I know that I have beaten this topic into the ground. But this is not me promising that I am going to stop. Because the rain hasn't stopped. And who am I to argue with the persistence of weather? 

Anyways...the first day of July is tomorrow. And in honor of that, I thought that it would be appropriate to post something bright and colorful. 

Hi there, bright and colorful
Bright orange

My, you are quite bright and colorful.
I wish I knew what kind of flower this is

Breathing in the essence of the bright and colorful.

I'm not sure what kind of flower this is. 

What kind of flower is this?

Whatever kind of flower it is, rest assured that it is being incredibly well-watered.
