The Lilies are starting to bloom

I love the crepe myrtle trees. They bloom for 90 days. They brighten up my day.

Isn't she pretty? Who knew cows had woolly ears.

    Sorry, I misunderstood your earlier comment. Glad to hear you have central air. Hard to imagine life without it, especially in the south. Growing up in PA, we didn't have it for the longest while, then got some wall units. However, my mom hated ac, so never wanted to turn it on. Summers were brutal!

    I know what you mean! The first thing I did when I moved into my house in VA was to put in central air. The house didn't have duct work, so I had to have that installed, too. I'm too much of a wus about heat to deal with it back there. Do you have window units? If not, hats off to you and your DH for cooking in 95 degree heat!

    Yes, the cool down from Ben only lasted about 3 days. We're in the high 80's today, and have a predicted high of 91 tomorrow. Since I don't have air-conditioning, the only thing that's saving me is that our lows have been in the 40's. Since I have a first floor apartment, I close up the apartment in the morning and turn on the ceiling fans. Then, around 8 pm when the outside temp is finally cooler than inside the apartment, I open both sliders all the way until I go to bed. Overnight, I keep the one in my bedroom open a few inches to let the cool air back in. It's not gotten above 75 in here in the daytime, but tomorrow that will be tested.

    I'll bet the heat and humidity are both doing their normal summer thing back there. I don't have much tolerance for either, but at least I had air-conditioning in my VA house.

    Stay cool!

    We may or may not get much rain from this one. I'm hoping we will. Summer here is a bit strange. Usually, the first part of it is the hottest. Then the monsoons start, and in a good year, those go a long way towards moderating our temperatures. Summers can really be quite pleasant, with cool nights. But it all depends on us getting a decent monsoon season. Fingers crossed!

    Hey, Linda! Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog. It really was a beautiful day, so I'm glad I had my camera. It's been too hot lately for any walks, but we're expecting a break soon. Can't wait!
