My goodness have we had hot weather the last few days. It was over 90 degrees here today. My roses have been opening so quickly that you can almost here them pop! I know I shouldn't complain about the weather being so hot when that is normal for some parts of the country, but we here, up in the Northwest are just not used to it at all. That will all change tomorrow as we cool down quite a bit, thank goodness. My roses aren't the only things that are blooming in the garden. The dogwood tree is in full bloom right now and looks wonderful. It has been a bit of a challenge to make sure that everything is well watered. Unfortunately my poor lettuce is not looking so good, the heat really took a toll on it. I think I will have to plant a new batch which hopefully will be ready in a couple of weeks or so.
The heat took a toll on me as well, as sewing and knitting were out of the question. The last thing I wanted to do was handle wool felt or yarn. So the only thing I have to show for today's post are these flower pic's. I hope you enjoy them and I hope you enjoy your weekend too!
