August 1st and a long way to go yet ...

I'm cheating .. this picture was taken on the 7th of July ... but it sort of illustrates that we are working our way around the bend of the season (most of us that is) and it has been a tiring, TRYING time with so little rain with drought conditions screaming at us to water the poor plants that are struggling.
We actually had rain last night (it is sad to see someone so excited about that issue .. only another gardener can understand it) ... and ... it might rain a little again today .. yes folks I am almost passing out with gratitude to mother nature for this gift keeping my plants going.
So no long post with too many pictures .. just a quiet bee doing it's job and getting on with it !

The only good thing about this drought is that we have had no mosquitoes. We can actually sit out at night and enjoy the garden after the sun goes down.

P.S. I fully understand your joy about a little rain. I would be whooping it up if we got rain.

Yes as the heat and dry weather continue here I am dreaming of Fall weather! I am wishing for cool rainy days(-: I love my flowers but they are overly tired of this heat. I think they want to shrivel up and die(-: Enjoy your rain(-:

Hi Joy, It certainly has been dry and hot. We got some rain as well, but the plants are so thirsty that they immediately want more. I am hoping for cooler temperatures soon!

Girl I know what you are saying about getting some much needed rain and getting so excited about it. We had a dry spell too. But yours has been much longer. That is a great picture Joy. Hope you get a lot more rain.

Hi Lisa girl .. well yet again I almost believed the weather forecast and also yet again it failed .. no more rain for us !
I am glad the bugs aren't bother you .. I moved a pot and scared a poor cricket .. I love hearing them : )

Cindee girl : ) roll on October .. because I have a feeling that September may be just as bad .. I wish I could just push a button and poof ! cool weather for us all !LOL

Yes Jennifer girl .. the plants are so darn greedy they are pushing us to our garden edge ! LOL

Lona girl we are back in this horrible heat and humidity .. I went out at 7 this morning and spent just a little time tidying up and I am drenched in the unmentionable SWEAT ! hahaha
