I think this is how the plants were feeling.
I saw this picture over at my friend Cindy's blog
That link will take you to the post where I saw it.
She posted about the much needed rain today.
Her blog is fun for me. It is place a little different than my own, a little escape.
She posts about, Art, Books, and Tea! Clever huh?
I recently won this bird from a giveaway on her blog.
This is her photo. It looks pretty cute sitting on the bird bath doesn't it?
I haven't yet found a home for him here. When I do, I will take my own picture.
I hope you don't mind that I borrowed your picture Cindy. The complete post can be seen here!
She also has these awesome cats that post now and then!
I do hope you will stop and pay her a visit.
My friend Cathy over at My 1929 Charmer posted about deadheading our flowers in our gardens to help them survive in this heat. That is such great advice. I have some that I have deadheaded out of habit, and others I will be visiting tomorrow, to help them through this heat. Yes, it rained, but it has still been a stressful summer for our plants. Cathy's blog is fun . She actually has a '1929 Charmer' and she has an awesome linky party on Sundays. Take a break from the heat and say hello to Cathy!
My friend Sam over at FarmGirlSam finds plenty of ways to beat the heat.
In my house, this wouldn't be a beating the heat sort of task since we don't have a/c, but...
If canning isn't your thing, Sam loves to create with yarn and string. She has taken on the challenge of a year of projects. You just never know what sort of interesting thing she will share from day to day. We've become friends. If we lived closer, we would beat the heat sharing a nice cold beverage!!! She would love new visitors! (who wouldn't right?)
Despite the lack of rain, the yellow squash are doing fine!
I wish I could say the same for our cucumbers. We have TONS of blossoms, but no cukes. :(
It was soooooooooooo nice listening to the rain drops fall earlier.
If only they were gently falling shortly as I fall asleep.
I won't get greedy though. The rain earlier was very much needed. They are comparing this summer's lack of rain (and winter lack of precipitation) to the drought of 1988. ICK!!!
I hope you will take some time to beat the heat and pay my bloggy friends a visit.
