Late Afternoon Sun

As I was walking around my front yard yesterday afternoon, I noticed how nice the yard looked as the late afternoon sun shined upon it.

Despite the heat, this time of year is when I like to walk around the yard and check on my flowers. They definitely need a lot of water with these temperatures.

It reached 100 degrees yesterday and today they say we will be reaching close to 110 degrees! I am not look forward to that. Our normal high is 87. It looks like we are in for a very hot summer. Not good for our drought and not good for fire danger. 

So, on a overly hot day, such as today, I will just enjoy the yard from inside the cool house. Hope you are having and enjoying much cooler weather!!!

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
