Smoky Skies Have Become The Norm

The air quality in Tehama County is in the unhealthy range. This is what the local newspaper told us today. But, I could of already told you that.
For weeks now, our skies look as if we are living in a constant fog. Except, when you do venture outside it does not smell or feel like fog. We were blessed with bright blue skies for July 4th but soon after trhe stagnent weather pattern settled in again and our valley was consumed once again in smoke.
It seems that it may be weeks before we again can again breathe clean air and see the stars twinkling in the night sky. This is a summer that won't be forgotten by many people for many years.

Petunias and Hot Summer Weather

It's been two years since I have updated my blog. I had gotten busy with my Etsy shop which took a lot of my time. Just lately, I started missing writing on my blog. So, here I am with my first post in two years! 
 I was looking back at my early summer pictures and was surprised at how much my petunias have grown. the above picture was taken in early June. 

Here it is late August and they have grown so much. They've needed a lot of water and tender loving care during our very hot summer weather (over 100 degrees most days). 

A few times, I thought they might not make it. Glad they did, as I love looking out my window at their beauty.

Hello September!

Hard to believe that we are leaving summer behind already. But, welcome September! Inching ever closer to my favorite season of the year.

September days are here With summer's best of weather And, autumn's best of cheer
