Sunday Safari

Our drought continues.

The Zinnias are providing food for the butterflies.
I water them twice a day.

Today's forecast is for 106 degrees.
Too hot for me to be outside even in the shade.

The lawn is straw.
I am feeding the birds and making sure they have plenty of water.

Every now and again
I peek out and watch the butterflies .
I am happy they have nectar.

We are watching the Olympics.
I am looking forward to Fencing.

We are getting ready to pack up July.
August is coming and I want to be ready.

We will remember July 2012.
We will remember to be grateful for every
drop of rain that falls.

Water is a precious resource.

I am planning the gardens for 2013.
We will replant.
We are gardeners.
We always have hope.

Happy Sunday Safari.
May you have cool shade to rest in.

Poor girl. Poor garden. We are having a cool spell here today with lots of cloud cover. When did 92 begin to feel cool??? CRAZY weathers. Love seeing your butterflies.

I love your beautiful photographs...
But I am very sad that it is still so hot, and that the Rain Dragons haven't returned to your house yet...
We, too, are watching the Olympics.
I feel your presence.
Angie, who is too tired to dance with the hummingbirds today :)

Wild weather. Everywhere. But your photos are outstandingly gorgeous and your blog speaks with heart. A beautiful spot to visit.

So sorry you still have no relief Sherry! We had a week of lovely weather and now we have rain...again :-( I wish I could send some to you, in fact we have had so much I wish I could send all of it to you ;-)

Your butterflies are so beautiful. The one with the 'eyes' is stunning!

106 is definitely too hot for going outside! We've had a little cooler temps the last few days--in the 90's. As Lisa says, I can't believe that I am relieved when I see the high is "only" going to be 90:)

Trying to keep things watered here, too. Storms were all around us yesterday, but only a few raindrops fell here. I've been watching as much of the Olympics as I can, too--last night's gymnastics' win was a highlight for me.

Have a great week and stay cool, Sherry.
