I did I said " You won't hear me complain the year , bring on the summer" ..Well Mother Nature finally let summer arrive in the middle of June
What has followed is summer with all the 3 H's . .
July, with very hot days , nights warm and tropical..Sunny days made for great beaching . . BUT and here is the first but , DRY more than that VERY DRY!. My back yard grass looks like a hay field, golden brown , not a pretty golden brown....
|See the tiny bit of moisture on the concrete that was our rainstorm.|
In comes August, the heat and humidity continues.. The daytime temps are somewhat better so far no more days of 36C. Nights warm and still.. BUT(note 2nd But) I live in Canada I should not be living my summer in A/C. When I do venture out I sweat even sitting, reading I sweat, let alone trying to do any gardening Sweat runs into my eyes. . I do not like to sweat.!
Rain has been forecast just about every 2nd day...Cheering I am..rain is coming .. for the garden , trees and lawn. Perhaps a cooler day? Each day with rain forecast I cast my eye to the sky.. Praying for the relief of a good old fashioned thunder storm to quench the earth.
The sky looks promising..
|Drops I see drops.|
Teased, here comes the sun! again!
