Still Hot & Humid !

 

As each day passes it seems to be hotter then the day before  but the good thing is the winds from lake Erie which we live a 6 min drive from has been keeping things bearable . Miggy and I have been keeping cool either in the house during the hot afternoons or sitting on our back porch , see we have that huge tree near our porch that  canopies over  a lot of that part of the yard  and porch and that also helps keep it cooler under our porch as well as the cool winds blowing through the porch , so it depends on how hot poor Miggy is whether we stay out or go in  as she has a fur coat in this heat , I cant imagine how hot she feels sometimes !

I rigged up our old beach umbrella over the pergola and bird fountain to keep the hot sun off the the birds water in the fountain .

Doesn't look pretty but it works that's the main thing for the birds to have plenty of cool water to drink in this heat !

            I refreshed all my nectar feeders for the little guys as well , they need a cool sweet drink !

               The mornings are cool under our porch as it faces west , the sun is in the east now and slowly getting higher , stronger and is moving to its highest hottest peak for noon, as it is only 9:30 am as I write this  and its nice and cool in here, still  Miggy and I are off to sit on the porch  and get some air  . I with coffee  and camera in hand  watching and photographing all that is going on in the yard  and Miggy ready to watch or chase the critters  .

                                         Until next time hope you all have a cool day !

I know the birds appreciate the cool water. It is so dry here the bees are coming for a drink of water at our bird bath.

You are very kind to your song birds and hummers. Water is essential and I like the umbrella shading the bird bath. Stay cool!
