Porch Days

Incredible blue skies and sunshine today. Lots of the stuff, it surely feels like we are in the midst of summer with this 90 degree heat.
True to form, my dearest decides to landscape, in this blazing sun, he tolerates the extreme Southern heat and humidity much more than I do.
Norseman's blood runs through my veins, after the temperature rises above 80 degrees I'm wilted like a head of week-old lettuce.
I do very well cleaning off the porches, with a little shade overhead, so with my trusty feline companions by my side, I'm scrubbing tables, and chairs, and being the cold water-runner, when I see the gardener flailing.

Me, too, about heat. I live in the PNW, though, and usually it's pretty nice out. We might reach 65 degrees today! :-)

Temp today is 90... not too bad. It will get hotter. Love Texas, but come July and August and we need to be elsewhere. Your porch looks restfull.

We are looking at rain next couple of days. Hot here as well.
You have a lovely place to be, happy summer time.

Your porch is lovely! And I hate the humidity too - bleh. Just saps the energy right out of a person.

Love the porch, I like the shade too being a northerner.

About 20C (68F) today, sunny, blue sky, fluffy white clouds with a nice breeze.

You're experiencing our temperatures. Hope these highs don't last too long for you. I dream of a summer home in the mountains above the snow linem

Such a nice porch with beautiful ferns. Lovely.

I hope your temperatures cool some soon. I am like you when it comes to heat and direct sunshine. Melt...

xo,

This is definitely the time of year to do outside work early. It was 68 this morning at 5am when I turned the sprinklers on to water my flowers. Early so to not loose much to evaporation. Sheets washed and blowing in the breeze by 8. When the heat rises they will dry quickly and smell so good tonight when I go to bed. By 10 am here it will be too hot to do much outside except sit on the porch with a big ole glass of ice tea and watch boaters go up and down there river. It's wonderful.
