99 Degrees

Boy is it ever hot!  I checked back on the blog and found we had a heat spell last June as well with it getting to 100 degrees.  I knew we had some cool weather mid summer, but in looking back, it was early July.  I'm waiting!!

We're trying to work inside and I'm letting the mowing go.  It's just too hot, even at 7pm. I figure the grass will still need mowing next week!

Last evening was a little cooler though as some clouds threatened to bring some much needed rain.  It never rained, but we did get a little cool breeze.  We took advantage and took a little ride on the golf cart and a little "fish" watching .  The "fish" are actually large bullfrogs but since I'm deathly afraid of frogs, we prefer to think of them as fish :)


 Here is a long distance picture of our resident fox. There were actually two there, but I could only get one photo. It's a little fuzzy as I was zoomed in from a very long distance.

Our raspberries are doing well and the blueberry plants are small but have a lot of berries on them. We just need more plants!



Here is our harvest. Potato's apples, and berries.

The berries looked so yummy! I had a friend who had a fox that came around her home quite frequently. They used to toss it little doggie bones.

We continue to be hot here and it has tried to rain but so far nothing. I hope we have another cooler July!!!!

I would have gobbled those berries up as I was picking them. There wouldn't have been any left to put in the bowl!!

I loved the fox picture too! I know it was far away, but I could picture him lurking out in the thick grass!

Karen,
Thanks for following my blog! Those new potatoes and berries look scrumptious! That's the only thing I miss about fulltiming...having my own garden.

It's been cold here in Idaho. Wish I could have just a tad bit of your heat. :)
