A Muggy Humid Day


Oh my is it ever humid out there . The air is hazy and thick .  Miggs and I went for our early morning walk and then came in for a bit . Then we popped outside for a bit so I could walk the yard see how things are and of course get some photos !

Temps are 25°C  Feels like 34 or 77°F Feels like 93 with 80% humidity . We are to get some rain later and that always pumps up the humidity even more . By then the temps will reach a humid 27°C Feels like 38  or  81°F  Feels like 100  or more , nasty I say !

So as of now Miggs and I are in the cool cause I was only out for about half and hour and by the time we came in I was drenched and Miggs was panting like crazy !

This is Theodore … our nosey little chipmunk who just has to see what we are up to as he peeks around the corner of my shed sitting up on a fence post !

           Keeping the birdies water cool in the shade ! I put lots of ice cubes in their fountain for them to help keep the water cool  !

Our sunflowers  that we didn’t plant are doing well . I think it was Theodore that planted them  .

It is so humid today there is dew on the plants ! Living in a valley with forest all around and a river running through it tends to hold moister ! The main reason we get so much fog here !

This little guy is taking a well deserved break from the heat and having a drink from the dew on the leaf !

I think this little butterfly is doing the same thing . Look carefully and you can see a dew drop on the  leaf beside him !

And of course we have Miggs ..who does this if I am spending to much time photographing other things and not her , as she does this she is grunting and making all kinds of sounds to get my attention and camera on her .. from the looks of it , it works lol ! Silly girl !

                      That’s all for today my friends  , until next time , stay cool  and have a good day !

It sure is hot and humid after the rain of yesterday. I'm out pulling weeds and cutting back some plants today.

I've been inside all day cooking and baking...the fog was really thick this morning,and it's been dull so the dew never left until late.

Hi Elaine, that humidity would have me on my knees but you took some fantastic photos before you had to go inside. Miggs is my favorite picture of course but those others, of the cheeky little chipmunk and all your others are impressive. We're in Yellowstone right now and we are waking up to cool temperatures in the morning (50's) and it warms up to low 70s. Really my kind of weather. I love those fresh mornings. Hope your heat and humidity isn't heading our way. Have a great week and stay cool :)

Beautiful photos! Your garden looks amazing. And you have a nosey little chipmunk, too! Hahaha... We have one as well. This year he's been living under our deck, snooping around the backyard and checking out what I'm doing whenever I'm out there. He is such a busybody that we decided to name him accordingly: Mr. Inski...first name 'Butt' :)
