WOW ! it has been a hot and humid day today and going to continue through the weekend as well after a welcomed cool off for a few days before . Still not very much rain at all has fallen here but hoping for some into the evening and over night tonight with thunderstorm's .
Miggs has been on rest as she has injured her right paw again chasing critters , only last month she did that same injury we took her to the vets again as I feared it wasn't just her claw that was causing the problem like we thought last time and they did x-rays this time as it was so much more painful for her then last time as well and found that her right outer toe that would be like our baby toes or pinky's the bone has a small tumor like spot on it or rough etching as they called it as well and she is again on antibiotics and inflammatory meds for two weeks , the vet said that she may have to have that toe removed and they would have it biopsied to make sure it wont spread if in fact it is cancerous and this is the only way they can do it so we are hoping it doesn't come to that but if it saves her from ill harm then so be it ! But trying to keep a Bearded Collie / Terrier mix down and not to chase or herd anything is quite a challenge in its self !
I have been puttering here and there keeping all the watering areas clean and full of fresh water for all our feathered and critter friends as it has been so hot for them as well as keeping my gardens on the go watering them in the early mornings and later in the evenings .
Oh and of course taking photos lol !
I had this little metal watering can with fairy in the house and thought I would add it to one of the bird baths we got from the estate sale over the weekend we went to ! Which we are going back to this weekend as they are only having the sale during the weekend's and they have tons of treasures lol !
Tuesdays full moon called the Buck moon was beautiful . The name "buck moon" is one of three names given to the moon in North America in July because it arrives during the time when male deer, called "bucks," are beginning to grow their antlers . I love a full moon .
This year my new to us from last year that we planted in our butterfly hummer garden the white thistle globe has grown 4 feet tall and looks soo pretty .
The birds have been scares with this heat during the day as they take shelter in the shade under cover in our cedar hedges where it is cooler and pop out for a bite to eat later in the evenings and early mornings same with the critters .
Well that's about it for us here not much going on , just all keeping cool the best we can . I hope we get the rains that are forecasted , that will help the land and gardens more in this heat wave , I noticed our river is very low to and a bit stinky as it gets like that with lack of rain and the amount of silt that just sits in it fermenting PEUW !
Until next time , stay cool !
