My balloon flowers are just about played out. I have diligently watered them since we had the hottest June on record since 1952. The average high for 1952 was 84 degrees, and 2010 average high was 80. We had 3 weeks in the high nineties. Feeling more like July than June.
When Maggie and I went out this morning, it was in the sixties and a light breeze was blowing. Ah, it felt like I had been delivered to Heaven. I just stood outside and enjoyed the sounds and feel of this pleasant morning.
As you can tell by the photo we have not had any rain on the hill except for a few teasing showers that do not wet the ground under the plants. So as I was walking around on the crunching grass, I had the feeling that June and July were reversed. The weather folks warn we will only have a few days of this type of weather and then the HEAT will return probably with a vengeance.
After the May 2ND flood, I did not think I would wish for rain but now as we are parched and dry, I would be happy to see rain in our forecast.
I took my cup of coffee out on the porch and sat watching the sun rise and listening to the chirping of the hummingbirds as they had their morning breakfast on us . I said a little prayer of "thankfulness."
The kitty justice is it has been a long time since I could enjoy such a morning.
