As the temperatures rise
and the drought continues
I am impressed how nature adjusts.
Butterflies seek shade
and the large leafed plants
fold their leaves.
and the small butterflies
seem to be less skittish.
The Missouri River is lower than normal.
The Corps of Engineers is
releasing water upstream.
Keeping barge traffic operating is a priority.
After our early morning watering
we came inside.
We watched the finale ride
Congratulations to Bradley Wiggins.
Congratulations Great Britain.
This is your week.
The Open played at Royal Lytham & St. Anne's golf course.
The fourth round was very exciting. The course in Lancashire, England is remarkable. I knitted while marveling at the sand traps! On these amazing hot and dry days I work at finding ways to enjoy the afternoons. Thank goodness for air conditioning and knitting. It is 105 degrees in the shade.
I am looking forward to watching the summer Olympics.
Opening celebrations are next Friday.
I have been following the the torch relay.
The Olympic Flame is in London! Such fun.
I remember when in 1984, the Olympic Torch
was on its relay west across the U.S. to California.
A runner came down the street in front of my house
with the Torch burning brightly.
Family and friends gathered on my front lawn.
It was very exciting.
There is barely a breeze this afternoon.
Very low humidity. The air is dry.
I will water again. The gardens depend on me in the heat
and drought. The seedlings seem to call out for water.
I put a sunhat up on the porch wall.
It seemed to be the perfect end of July decoration.
The shootings in Colorado have touched my heart.
We are one.
Happy Sunday Safari.
