It has been a rainy weekend. The heavy monsoon rains continued into yesterday, and looks like it will remain. I always think of July as peak monsoon. To check, I went back to my photos of early July.

I knew it spread fast, but I was surprised to find that it is counted among the top 100 invasive species in the world. I guess we are number one. Here’s looking at you, cousin.
