Spring has slipped into summer

 and the days are filled with extreme heat.

As I grumble and whine about how hard it is to just take a stroll.......

looking like a melted , wind blown mess, 

everything stands tall and lovely in it's

 vibrant color
and it all seems to sing a happy song of summer.
Making me glad that I take the time........to melt.....
and to see it's beauty.
every creature finds it's own place of comfort 
and carries on with it's daily life
and I stop to wonder...........how do 
they not just wither and crisp up in this
In all of their simple existence.........
they make me see how lovely each day can be
whether rain or shine.
Here's wishing you pleasant days with lovely things to see!

Sorry about the heat. We complain out here about high temperatures but I'm quite sure yours are higher. It sure is not comfortable being outside.
The wildflowers are so lovely. It's amazing how they can thrive in spite of dry conditions and that heat. Take care and keep cool if you can.

“…and it all seems to sing a happy song of summer.” Even those tough little critters that don’t seem to mind the heat at all. Your sweet rolls look incredibly delicious.

We don't get those high temperature in my neck of the woods.
Our summer is pretty much like one long spring.

I feel your pain! So hot here, too. I feel very bad for the little creatures (although I'm drawing the line at the Giant Centipede) and wet down areas for them and feed/water the birds extra. Your photos are so beautiful, just incredible today!

Love those flowers in the first two pictures.

We too are roasted, yet the flowers grow 🌺

Faith said...

Brenda Kay Ledford said...

Oh, my those rolls like so good. Can't wait to try the recipe. I love your beautiful flowers.

The blueberry rolls look scrumptious, the centipede, not so much... It's the only critter I'm wary of.
Your flowers are amazing, and resilient to last through the heat. Enjoy the summer, we're blue around the mouth here in South Africa!

You somehow make even the creepiest of crawlers look appealing! I think you must be seeing them through God's eyes.

Sally said...

Such lovely colors! Love those flowers, and the tiny creatures remind me that two days in a row, there have been lizards on my windshield. The problem? I don't see them until I'm down the road. Then, I try to go slower so they don't fall off!

So good to see you again, and yes the rolls look awesome!
