Sunday Summer Showers

It has been hot here lately. Well hot for here anyways! Mighty early in the season for this many days of prolonged heat. So dry. It is June not August! Days that heat up quickly, nights that fail to cool, dry. Hard on the plants, hard on the animals, hard on the humans. Then this morning- Gray skies, a breeze, big fat raindrops, thunder in the distance. Time to do a barnyard dance!!! It feels SO good! The plants rejoice, the animals rejoice, the human rejoices. It will not last… the forecast tells us the heat will ramp up another notch in the coming week.

But to celebrate a garden tour was in order. Come join me.

Here the Bumble Bees in the Lavender. Check the egg filled nest hidden in the gooseberries. Listen to the buzz of Honey Bees beginning their workday. Pollinators on flowers, flowers glowing to attract them. Cane berries ripening. An early morning harvest. The first Dahlia bloom. A buck deer bedded down at the edge of the woods. The scent of  flowers & rain spattered soil in the air.   Beauty surrounds. Beauty abounds.

  1. We got a glorious sprinkle this morning too. We ran out and just stood in the drops for a few minutes until it passed. What a relief! You can’t beat summer rain. I just hope we get more of it…this heat is ridiculous! Stay cool 🙂

  2. OH RAIN! Rejoice! We’re in a heat wave, 107, even the weeds are hanging their heads. 88 already early this morning. I love that you did a little barnyard dance with the rain – it’s what I will do too once it finally comes down. Perhaps in October…

    Love the bird nest picture!
