day thirteen of over 100 degrees arrives as promised

has become a daily ritual with cool water droplets that relax & refresh

i just saw on the news - day 17 for dallas. less days in a row here, but not too many less, and still hangin' above that 100 degree mark. which means i SOOO get this. if i forget to water the plants in the morning, and do so at lunchtime, steam actually comes out of the hose at first. veryyyy hot!! by the time it cools i always get my toes wet. :)

I love this set Elk! That is what I love about creative people take a hellish day and make something beautiful out of it. Wish the weather would warm up around here, Mark Twain was right, the coldest winter he ever spent was a summer in San Francisco!

That purple rain is gorgeous. When I lived in Austin, I always loved watering the lawn. Getting myself wet on purpose and creating rainbows with the spray of the water... Man, I miss that.

ELK said...

watering the garden is a relaxing time for me. it's hot and muggy here as well but not over 100 - just high 90s. i'm about ready for autumn.
your photos are refreshing. love that second one.

Betsy said...

Ugh...that IS hot! But your toes look pretty! :)

Judy said...

Thirteen days of over 100 degrees? I feel bad for enjoying our one cool day yesterday :)
Stay cool and hydrated my friend.

i liked these three photos; so different for you blog here; enjoyed the vibrant colors.
here in the bay area of california we are at lows for a summer; the lowest temps in over 90 years and no day over 80 degrees for another week; they think it might turn into summer for a month or so; and that we might not have a wet winter, in spite of being in la nina

Relyn said...

It does look purple. OH MY!

Kellee said...

We've been over 100 for months, now. That water looks so lovely. I especially like the textures in the first image. :)

elizabeth said...

I somehow missed this post. I can almost feel the spray from the middle photo. Ahhhhhhhh.

Patty said...
