Hot, Hot, Hot, Feelin Hot, Hot, Hot
Hey folks, it is going to be another hot one out there! Yesterday we hit 99 with a heat index of 105!
I decided to get in the garden early this morning, which for me means around 8:30 or 9:00 a.m., and get some watering and weeding done.
The front yard is in the shade in the morning, so I was able to get most of the weeds pulled without having a heat stroke. The back yard, is another story. Full on sun! Hot, Hot, Hot!
Just before I decided to come inside, something bit me on the foot! God, it hurt. For some reason, I decided to call Big and tell her. She now thinks I have been bit by a Black Widow spider (yes, we do have them) and is calling me every 15 minutes to see if I have succumbed to the bite. I think I stood on a bee, that had decided to sit in the grass. They do that right? Anyway, gotta love Big for being concerned.
I was able to take some photos of a few butterflies that didn't mind the heat. I hope you enjoy them. These were taken with my new phone. Sorry if they are not so great. I am still learning. The Baby, who has a phone like mine, says there is an editing app or something like that, but I don't know anything about it yet!
The final photo is of a flower that I am unfamiliar with. When we first moved here, this was the only plant in the back flower bed. I originally thought it was an iris, because of the leaves. I know see it is not, but am not sure what it is. Any ideas!
I hope you have a wonderful day. I am off to have a quick shower and then to my sewing studio! I am going to finish the last block of a quilt that I started almost a year ago! I hope to show it to you tomorrow. Of course, it is Favorite Things Friday tomorrow and I am not sure this quilt will make it on that list!
Pin It Now!
