And really really dry. I'm laying low in the house today. Up early to tend to all the beasties and will do a noon watering and check on all, but otherwise I'm hibernating! Pastures are shot. I worry about all the old ones--the ancient chickens, the elderly sheep. Here was my (brief) morning outside in pictures. Hope it's cooler at your house!
|Looks more like fall with all the downed leaves|
|Here are the five elderly members of the flock. The youngest is nine (the black one) and the rest are ten.|
|Chaco & Noah hanging out in the catio|
|The 'garden' is growing. The tomatoes are thriving in the heat|
|Cherokee Purples--Maybe I'll have tomatoes this year!|
|Volunteer Sunflower--cheerfully greats the burning sun|
|Trumpet vines --- fill up station for the hummingbirds|
|Deck tomatoes are looking great!|
|Trinity soaks up the sun....even when it's too hot for the rest of us|
|Hot Dogs. Ashley, Minty, Carly|
|Trumpet vine--early morning heat haze|
|Minty wants me to do something about the heat!|
Praying for rain!
