Hello my Tuesday Friends!!!!
Brother it is hot here!!!! HOT! HOT! HOT!
It was 91° F at 9 am this morning and the humidity is high too. So my morning chores in the garden were a drippy experience and it was me that was dripping :(
Our forecast for the rest of the week is right at 100° F every day. I'll be staying inside as much as possible. Just going out to move "Hank" the sprinkler around the yard.
This morning I planted two new Echinacea's in the garden. I don't usually plant in this type of heat but we got a new shipment of the "Cheyenne" Echinacea in and they were flying out the door fast. So I bought them and knew it would be easier to keep them alive in the ground than in the plastic pots.
Here they set in my circle drive flower bed. Along with my morning coffee which was quickly traded out for iced herbal tea!
I just love these bright coral orange flowers and they should really give the flower bed a boost in color. They had some yellow ones on Saturday when I first saw them but when I went back out to buy them the yellows were all gone. Hopefully they will get another shipment of them.
The Joe Pye Weed started blooming this week which usually means that the Monarch Fall migration is going to start soon. A bit early this year but we will see. I haven't seen a Monarch in weeks but that's not unusual for here in the middle of the summer.
For quick update on Lady. She went to the vet and got a clean bill of health. We had them give her all of her shots and have decided to keep her for ourselves.
It's past the required posting dates for stray dogs so she has her forever home now. ♥
No art again this week. I'm still knitting... or trying to ... a cowl. It is coming along and will be wearable if not perfect. Crochet is just so much easier ans faster for me :)
