Hot And Steamy....

 I am not talking about the latest movie...I am talking about the weather. :):) It was hazy and and my camera lens fogged, but I like the way this shot turned out. This weather is making the corn grow into tall giants.. You can see the corn on each stalk about half way up. The fields are beautiful around here.
 Now this photo of the shop/garage is just the haze. Ted has AC in the shop, but we do not use it during the hottest part of summer. It would take too much energy., then be wasted. So less time in the shop.
 Here is something else that loves the water and susans. I am liking the way they are growing this year. One of my mums has some blooms. I do not want them to bloom early then not have anything pretty to see when fall is here.
I am not sure we will be able to work on the potting shed/greenhouse, this year. I do not work as well in the scorching heat any more. Of course Ted and I can always take our time. We try to work before the day gets too hot. It's suppose to cool off, but then we are to have rain. I hope all of you are enjoying everyday of this beautiful summer, even if it is a bit hot. My granddaughter Savannah is coming over for a few days . I am excited about spending time with her. She is growing up fast, she is 11 .  xoxo


  1. Oh-It looks hot there, Susie. It has been miserable here, too, but is supposed to cool off today! You are right- the greenhouse can wait with weather like that beating you down.
    Have fun with Savannah! xo Diana

  2. i emailed you with some craft ideas for kids. check your junk mail folder.

  3. It is really hot here too. I am hoping it will cool down as they are predicting this week end. It has been several days in the high 90's and oh so humid. My black eyed susans are doing great too. They love this heat.

  4. i love it hot! enjoy that granddaughter! i know you will!

  5. I love hot weather but it's even too hot for me! Like you, it's supposed to rain tonight and then cool down for next week. I sure hope so. I love the first picture. It turned out so beautiful!

  6. Keep cool, Susie. So hoping the heat breaks soon.

  7. I hope you are keeping cool, Susie. I don't do well at all in heat and humidity, so I spend a lot of time indoors during the day when the weather is very hot. I must admit to having the A/C running as much as possible.:-)

    I've been away for awhile, and hope to try to return to a more normal routine - at least for a few days.:-)

  8. Have fun with your granddaughter. I love your photos, especially the black eyed Susans.

  9. Oh I hope you get a reprieve from this horrible heat! Today ours has finally cooled down and it felt so good!!

    Stay cool and enjoy your granddaughter!


  10. You can always tell the heat by the haze... Or there are the times when you open the front door after being in the air conditioning and the thick air just hits you in the face... and you wonder for a split second if you can still breath :)... We know hot in Texas!
    Looks like you have it all sussed too!!
    I hope you have a great rest of your weekend!

  11. Have fun with your granddaughter they are very precious x
