I told myself I wasn't going to do this. I was NOT going to post about the heat. But I'm such a wiener...a roasted wiener!
Just to let you know, these photos were taken Thursday night at around 8:30 in the evening!!!! Note that the temperature is still near 100 degrees even after the sun is going down...errrr.
Then, to carry on with my whining, do you remember my little pot of onion tops?
It looks like someone took a match to them! Not only is it HOT here, we haven't had any rain...not even a drop...in at least 4 weeks! Yes, I do water the plants...but our water is so chlorinated and all, it's not the same as natural rain water.
And my pretty irises?
Well, they're not looking so good either! (there's proof of the water hose, I do water them!)
That evening, hubs came running inside, telling me to come with him outside...he wanted to show me something beautiful that we haven't seen in a LONG time...
A thunderstorm off in the distance...the only thing present in the big blue sky! It was oh so beautiful as the sun was setting but so sad that it was so far away. We need rain here...we need for things to cool off! Imagine if the temperature is 100 degrees, the heat index will rise (because of the 100% humidity) to around 110-115 degrees easy.
As you can see, the grass is dead/dying...all 6 acres of it and we just gravitate to any shade we can possibly get under...and so does that ONE little purple bloom of wisteria!
Did I whine enough already?
I'm sorry...I promise to post something pretty next time!
xoxo, the roasted wiener
ps...the coolest thing is that it's not too late to hop over to my Silver Bella little sis's blog create...breathe and enter her giveaway...
