Feeling Hot ,Hot, Hot

 

Well we wanted warm weather and we got it  , it has been hot and humid and very dry  hoping for some rain tonight .

I have been busy with  my gardens  and enjoying our yard and long walks with Miggs  in the early mornings before things heat up  and Papa has been busy with  his work and roofing  .

I have been having fun taking photos of all the birds , critters  and flowers  the butterfly's aren't around much right yet as all the flowers haven't bloomed yet  that they like to feast on but I did catch up with my first sighting here of a Swallowtail butterfly briefly as he stopped by to test the lilacs for a few minuets .

                        He didn't have time to pose for me so I just took a photo of him anyways for my archives lol !

                      We have lots of baby birds here now all squealing to be fed and following Mama and Papa about .

                                       Even though it has been hot and humid the yard has been joyfully busy !

                     Then Alvin joined in the fun and was quite playful with the birds and the idea of food near his home !

When we went to the garden center  Papa had picked himself up a few more Clematis  and planted them  , this one he made a little garden for her  by our arbor so she can climb up and over it !.

Then this one by our pergola so it can do the same thing climb up and over to shade the water fountain for the birds and critters instead of me using an umbrella for shade and it will look prettier to !

I planted all my  sun / shade  perennial plants around our big tree , with the new picket fence Papa built when they all grow and flower it will all look soo pretty !

Miggs approves for that as well  lol . Well that was a long winded post wasn't it ? It is so hard to share all that one has done  and enjoyed with in a few days all into one post , especially as I love to take so many photos  lol !  But I will be off now as I have watering to do with hope we still get rain tonight and enough to help all our gardens grow .

                                                                                 Until next time .

The new clematis will be lovely when established. As always Miggs looks happy to have her photo taken. Stay cool, perhaps a bit of rain tonight, which we really need.

Hello, lovely post and photos. I hope all is well. After having a long cold spell, I am happy with some hot weather. Have a happy day and week ahead!

Everything looks wonderful, Elaine. I had a swallowtail in my greenhouse this morning and I helped it out before it got too hot in there. I'm glad you are able to enjoy your gardens at this time. It's very hot here, too. "Hi Miggs and Alvin."

Your pictures are just beautiful! It has turned off hot here too, but I've promised to not complain! We had four beautiful sunny days last week and now the rain has come back. Love that Miggs!

The heat wave appears to have settled in here as well. Terrific shots- the chipmunk appears happy!

This was some serious heat for May.

I love all the sweet fencing that your hubby is building for your gardens. It's been quite cool here and cloudy - not the nicest weekend but things are looking up for tomorrow and the next few days. Everything is growing and greening up. Have a great week.

I enjoyed this long post and all the wonderful images you included, Elaine. The mother feeding the young robin and then the one in your garden was so charming. The flowers all look so lovely and must be enjoying the summer temps. It has been hot in Nashua, NH as well.
