My glorious summer has been challenging me lately... The days are longer and that suits me just fine but the heat (can I curse this unbearable heat?), humidity, and electrical storms are giving me grief. How did we ever survive without AIR CONDITIONING decades ago? My hours outdoors are limited and the evenings, lately, have halted my instinctive desire to be outdoors to observe and smile. The threatening skies and low lights keep me indoors.
Along the way today, I was able to see a few things that interested me. I’ll do this quickly because I hear thunder rumbling in the distance and I might need to shut down soon. I had less than two hours outdoors but I was determined to make the most of it and took a few photos.
Dove is wondering how they do it. Dove wants some suet, too, but Dove doesn’t have acrobatic skills to get there…
The drought (yes, we are still dry) is causing brown edges and crispy leaves but roses are strong.
I appreciated this fly-by when I was in a hurry.
A willow tree succumbed to the heat two days ago and the leaves suddenly turned brown. Sigh…
I slowly moved in closer. This photo made me feel better.
I did it again. At 7am, I pulled over quickly to see the most beautiful STOP sign of my life. It's my favorite photo of the day.
I guess it wasn’t a bad day, after all.
