Weve had company this weekend and oh my has it been HOT. The miserable summer type of heat is here. Accck! LOL!

Ric Wow! Great picture!
Celia Congratulations on the paid off truck! Thats reason enough for a celebration! LOL!
Adina Your house looks wonderful! Youre so lucky to have all the wildflowers surrounding your new home. Ive never seen campanula, love the color!
Joey JW is getting bigger and bigger! He is just too cute! Beeeeyouteeful bloom! I think it was Carol that hit in 1954.

We had a storm move through, but I still hear thunder in the distance. I was at the movie theater when it came through. Thought it was Indiana Jones playing in the theater next to us LOL! We received .5" of rain. No complaints...we need rain badly.

Through 515 PM...slow moving showers and isolated thunderstorms continue to develop over northeast Florida. The heaviest showers will move into areas near Jennings...Oleno State Park...Newberry...Archer and Fort Caroline. The showers have a slow drift to the east at 5 to 10 mph. Expect...brief gusty winds...heavy downpours of rain and cloud to ground lightning strikes with thunderstorms activity.

Hot, humid, and for now dry.

We got a small fast moving storm last night. Hail and everything. Lightning came close to hitting my neighbors but it didn't hit them thankfully. Today is quiet. Kinda nice. :~)

Isabella, MO(Zone 6b)

Beautiful coleus, Sidney!
great photo of the bee, Ric.
Joey: JW is moving on out! You won't be able to keep up with him once he starts walking!! I'm saying Cheryl on the trivia.
Adina: very pretty fixtures in the house. I just love that field of flowers outside your house!
Celia: congrats on the paid off truck! That's always a good feeling, isn't it?
Kelli: I always enjoy the photos of your "walkabouts"--keep 'em coming!
Sharon: your poinsettia is looking good. All mine still have red leaves on them from Christmas. I haven't done anything to them yet--it's called procrastination. LOL
Pepper: it's been unseasonably hot and humid here, too, but we did have a thunderstorm this afternoon. The wind was blowing so hard that even the big oak trees were bending over. It got pretty "hairy" for a few minutes. We lost one shingle off the roof but no other damage. The sun is shining brightly now. Current temp is 74.

marsue - glad to hear you escaped the brunt of the storms Temps here in the mid 70's. Humid. Later this afternoon we had hot temps and brief 3 minute dowpours..

(Zone 7a)

We had 80s and lots of sun. It's windy now, like a storm brewing but I don't see any clouds.

Yes, it's good to be rid of that big payment.

Roses, Mau? I didn't know you had roses. ☺

What's the flower, Joey? It looks like a mum.

Adina, love to campanula. Such a pretty color.

Marsue - Pretty roses! Your poinsettia will get "leggy" if you don't trim it back. I didn't trim mine back last year. It was tall, but not full.
Kwanjin - Nice picture of the Sumac!

That's a hanging geranium in my window. This is the pot with more geraniums and the little MGs just popping out.

Pretty flowers, Adina. Are you going to be able to take all of your flowers with you when you move?
Celia: nice plants! Isn't plant shopping fun? I went plant shopping today and brought home a couple more. A "walker's low catmint" and a butterfly bush. I'm afraid I "have the habit!" (of buying plants)
Sharon: thanks for the advice on the poinsettia. I will try to cut mine back this very week (sometime).

Pau and I drove up to Greer's Ferry Lake--a Corps of Engineers lake about 40 miles from here. We had a nice drive and a good barbecue sandwich at a restaurant there and stopped at one of those corner nurseries/all-purpose places that sells sorghum molasses, jellies, jams, etc. That's where I got the two plants mentioned above. I wanted one of everything they had but I did well in restraining myself! LOL Unfortunately, I forgot to take my camera so I couldn't capture any of the great scenery for you. :o((

Here's a photo of my two new plants, though.

It's hot hot hot here, with no sign of rain. The humidity is only at 40%, so it isn't quite as unbearable as it could be. :-) I forgot to turn the sprinklers on this morning.. I'll have to do it tomorrow if I remember.

Tomorrow morning, the big bunny is having oral surgery. She is 7 now, and one of her 2 year molars never came in. It is impacted in her lower jaw, near the nerve and the jawbone, and there is a large cyst around it. So it has to come out. She's very nervous about the operation, but is looking forward to all of the ice cream that she'll get to eat afterwards. I'm pretty nervous myself!

My usual weather website is down, but this will do... :-)

Marsue, how far is Cabot from Conway? I have family there ( though we have not conversed in a long time ).

Rocky Mount, VA(Zone 7a)

Oh yea - 81 and real nice.

Isabella, MO(Zone 6b)

Cabot is about 30-35 miles from Conway, Dyson-depending what part of the city you are going to. Not a bad drive at all. We moved to Cabot about 18 months ago from the Conway area to be closer to grandkids over here.

It's 89 here at 5:05 p.m. I need to get out and spray Round-Up on the bermuda grass in the flower beds but I don't like to sweat! LOL Oh, well, I suppose I better get to it!

Amelia Island, FL(Zone 9a)

Celia Nice collection of plants! Love the mini-rose and bachelors button!
Adina Your geranium is so bright! I Love it!
Marsue I hate it when I leave my camera home! You bought some pretties too!
Marylyn Awww, your poor bunny. I hope everything goes well tomorrow. Well say a prayer for her. All 4 of my wisdom teeth were impacted had them removed at 32. I am soooo not looking forward to this Summer. I think its going to be worse than last year. The girls look like they are having a blast on the fort!

Today we went hiking. We were going to do a route that we had done years ago. It goes down into the canyon, up out of the canyon, and along a ridge back to the starting point - about 5 miles round trip. However, today, after we had gone about 3 1/2 miles we came upon this little bit of hostility.

I didn't think people were allowed to block off fire roads. Those are dirt roads through the mountains that the general public are not usually allowed to drive on but are there for fire fighting. In the previous picture, the "especially NPS rangers" (NPS = National Park Service) makes me suspect that something unlawful is going on back there. It would be a perfect place for a meth lab.

L.A. (Canoga Park), CA(Zone 10a)

So, we had to turn around and go back the same way we came, making it about a 7 mile hike with 900 ft elevation gain and loss. It took four hours. We didn't bring anything to eat and didn't bring enough water. I'm pretty well beat. I hope I burned a lot of fat!

What you really want to see - the wildflowers.

yellow mariposa lily - This one is more typical in size and shape than the one I showed you last week. When I saw this one, I yelled out, "Yellow mariposa!" That scared DH. I'm usually not very excitable or loud.

Yikes, Kelli!! I don't know who the "NPS Rangers" are, but judging by all of the barbed wire on that fence, the owners are pretty serious about keeping them out!

Thanks for all of the prayers. :-) All 4 of my wisdom teeth were impacted, too, and were yanked when I was 28. The oral surgeon was telling me apologetically that Joy's cheek was likely to be swollen and bruised afterwards, and there was a possibility that, if the tooth is too close to the nerve, that side of her mouth could be numb for a while. Yep... I looked like a chipmunk for quite some time after my surgery, couldn't eat solid food for 6 weeks, and half of my mouth was numb for 6 months, so I totally understood! My little sister had hers pulled a few months after mine and was eating hamburgers the next day... I've never quite forgiven her for that! LOLOL Hopefully my little JoyJoy's recovery will be more like my sister's than like mine! ^_^

Here is Browser, one of our Christmas kitties. He likes to eat and drink lying down, the lazy thing. If the water is too low to reach without standing up, he tips it towards him. It is VERY funny to watch!
