Every plant looks fresh and happy in the early morning
and everything has blooms..........
but by mid afternoon
every plant looks wilted and tired.
The heat has been up to the 100s on some days........
yet, every thing seems to survive it all
I have even been able to enjoy a plate or two of fried green
tomatoes from my tomato vine! No one else in my family cares for fried green tomatoes...........for me there is nothing better......
don't you agree?
My little group of tiny chickens......seem to not mind the heat as much.
They have plenty water and shade..........
yet, I am still surprised at how they enjoy running and chasing after bugs and such
when the days are so hot and muggy.
So when the heat is just too unbearable, I spend my time with my needle.
I finally finished a luncheon cloth and napkin set that I have been working on for months.
I designed it to match some of my vintage dishware in my shop.
You can see more photos and read about this on my embroidery blog at this link
I also went through some old recipes and decided to make a 30 Day Friendship
Fruitcake..........yes, it does take 30 days...........but so worth the effort!
To get the recipe and to read the story about this cake you can visit my cooking blog at this link
So how is the temperature in your back yard? Are you growing a garden or creating something with your hands? I would love to hear!
