It's getting to be sickening, this heat. And this morning I was up very early just as the sun was coming up, so I decided to head outside where the air was much cooler than in the house. Ahhhh it was refreshing!

This is why the birds love our MayDay tree so much in the summer, the berries must be very tasty:

All the windows have been open through the night, letting in as much cooler air as is possible without any breeze.

Hubby has been watering like crazy, but the midday heat is just scorching our plantings and cracking the soil.

Some things are still thriving though.

......while some are not. We're about to lose this I think.

It's "sister" here in the foreground is doing okay so far. The dying one is in the background.

What used to look like this with their flowers:

Now looks like this:

And another shot from before:

And now:

Yes the sun is taking it's toll not only on me with heat exhaustion sickness, but also on our poor gardens.

All is not lost though, Christmas is only 5 months away!! **grins**

I hope you're all staying cool where you are. Take good care of each other!

Love Jude
