WOW ! has it ever been hot , humid and dry here in Southwestern Ontario . The early mornings have been cooler so Miggs and I have been enjoying our walks but come late morning early afternoon FEW ! it is hot .
We had a wicked rainstorm last Friday night that gave us some welcomed rain .
But that has been it for the rain since and everything is dry , we have a heat and humidity warning in affect now as well as water usage is to be limited . A typical summer for us .
Papa often plays with Miggs when he gets home from work but this time I decided to get photos .
These two have such a fun time and Miggs just loves to great Papa with a toy and huge tail wag !
Miggs goes in her pool sometimes but prefers the sprinkler as you all have seen her in action in the sprinkler many times lol !
The ever allusive Northern Flicker early one cloudy morning , who actually sat on this pole for some time and didn't take off at the sight of me with my camera but he only let me get so close with a warning every time I snuck closer and closer lol !
One of our many Cottontail bunnies out for a nibble in the early morning !
This guy looked interesting as he sat up on our wall under the porch resting .
Waiting in cognito behind the Lilac bush for the squirrels .
Guess they took too long lol !
As our big old Manitoba maple tree that we had lost part of and trimmed the rest to save it slowly regrows new branches there isn't much shade like there was this side of it so I helped shade it for the birdies for now so they can feast in the cool .
Over the weekend it was cool enough later in the evening to enjoy a nice fire in our Chiminea and lounge on the patio .
Despite the lack of rain the gardens are doing well and al are in full bloom gracing us with their beauty !
Well that's about it for us for now . Not much going on really as the heat , humidity and lack of rain continues and we seek coolness in doors for the afternoons and watch something on our new TV either on PVR or Netflix build right in the TV . It is one of the new Samsung smart 4K TV’s a 50 inch it is soo nice clear and links to our computers it is amazing and is compatible with all our Samsung tablets and phones and Papas computer or lap top, cool eh? ! We are getting quite modern and techy now I said to Papa with a giggle lol ! PSST ! he has always been a techy geek as well a handy man to , lucky me eh? lol !
Until next time , stay cool !
