  1. Ahhhhhhhhh….thanks for the photographic reminder of the “pre-heat and drought” days we’re all suffering from lately. It looks nice and cool and comfy in the photo – love the “texture” too! Happy 4th – I’m hoping for rain! 😀

      1. Wish I could send you some rain. Summer’s finally arrived…at least for the next 5 days. I’m not complaining any more though, considering the heat wave that’s engulfed the rest of the country.

        i’m biting my tongue…

  2. I love the texture in this photo! We are hot here, but we at least have had a little rain accompanying those awful storms! Hope you get some rain soon. Dan is headed home on the 13th to spend 10 days in Hillsboro…I am headed to Florida to see my mom. Maybe later this year I will get back to MO! Have a great 4th and thanks for linking up!

    1. Thanks Tex! We stayed cool and stayed inside except for watering. Weather peeps are calling for relief by Sunday and Monday have a “cold front” making its way through our state. Not much hope for rain though. Hope you had a nice holiday!

  3. would it be awful of me to ask for you to post a photo of the drought-affected garden? Today we’ll probably hit 75, but it has been in the 60s, humid, and overcast for weeks. not that it’s bothering me, the overcast– dark, heavy, gray, low, depressing, dim…. !! So hoping you get to cool down.

    1. No, that isn’t an awful request… 🙂 We don’t have a veggie garden except for some tomato and bean plants. We have about 8 flower beds or beds of green stuff and they are doing fairly well because we are trying to keep them watered. Although our burning bushes are turning red and dropping leaves, they don’t do that until October. It is our Oaks, Dogwoods, Redbuds, Sassafras, Hickory and Pear trees that are showing the stress. Leaves turning yellow and dropping leaves. We had an Oak taken down Tuesday morning that was dying and the drought pushed it on. It was 106 here briefly yesterday and still 101 at 7. Same for today, Friday and Saturday BUT relief from the heat is rumored to be on the way Sunday and Monday. Rain chances don’t look promising. We shall see. I will get out and get some pictures when it cools a bit but I don’t know if you would be able to tell much. What really drives the heat wave and lack of rain home is when we drive to Jefferson City and naked trees are standing in yards and everything looks like Fall. Trees along the highway are yellow and brown and leaves all over… sad. Thanks for the hopes for a cool down, it may just happen next week!

  4. I am with you. Wistful for the pre-drought greens of this past Spring here in MissouREE…My ivy is dying, and some of the smaller flowering plants are dead. Withered by the relentless, blistering heat. I water the hardier bushes every night around 10PM, hoping at they will have a fighting chance at survival. Sure am GLAD I resisted the temptation to spend a buncha money on plants for the garden this year.

    1. I hear you! I can hardly drag myself out in the heat to water my withered impatiens but my basil and lavender are thriving! It is our trees I worry about and large burning bushes. Relief is supposedly on the way… Sorry about your green stuff, we have some that have given up the fight.

  6. Hi Pix,

    1. Christina you guys have had heat for a long time. I am glad you will see a cool down. We haven’t been this hot for this long in years. Hard on all the kitties that wander around here and it is taking a toll on all the other wildlife. Goes without saying that people are suffering. I can’t imagine people without a/c. I don’t know how they do it. Rough.

  7. I love birdhouses. They’re a special sort of charm about them. I don’t have any though. Our bird houses usually get full of wasps and so we gave up trying to have them. Great photo. 🙂

    1. Hi Isobel! Yes for a bit the beginning of the week and then the heat and drought has got me in a cranky so I have been staying off the computer. I looked at it yesterday morning and thought I should do some catching up and then I just picked up a book and started reading. And watering watering watering and more watering. I should come over and just let myself get lost in your blog.

    1. Thank you for thinking about us in this drought. It has me sad and I am usually pretty upbeat. It is taking such a toll on people, livestock in our area and birds and other critters. I am such a softie, I worry about our trees. Thank you for the visit… 🙂
