Our summer arrived in full hot force last week.
Temperatures are creeping above 30'C now, and the humidity is making it feel like 40'C
Our above-ground pool, which is not heated, reached 30'C yesterday ... thankfully just getting wet does cool you off somewhat.
After a long day of work ... and I spent the entire day outside for it! ... it was a relief to just float around for a half hour before supper.
The butterfly bush is doing so well again this year, and I catch faint whiffs of it when I'm in the pool.
The bees buzz all around it, but still no butterflies ... I don't know how they can miss all those blooms!
The daisies are at their peak and looking a little lost now that the butterfly bush has grown to overshadow them.
I've started watering the plants in the early morning.
They're all doing amazingly well!
I've been ignoring the garden in the front of the house because it's too hot to work out there.
But I look down at the garden from my living room window and it makes me feel guilty to see a few weeds growing higher than the cone flowers & lilies!
So yesterday I went out to do a bit of quick gardening before the sun came around to the front of the house.
I was pretty much melted into a puddle after that!
The weatherman forecasts a cooler 25'C by the weekend.
I can't say I'll be disappointed ;)
Thanks for stopping by!
