The Fourth of July devolved in the afternoon into nap time, and I was one of the first to wake up, so I took my Nikon outside and decided to photograph what 100 degrees looks like.
Not sure it was really 100. It was upper 90s, anyway, with a heat index way above 100, but who’s counting? It was hot.
And, surprisingly, not so terribly bad as I expected. I water every other day, and the plants looks tired, warm, thirsty, but not in terrible distress, in general. Much more of this weather and we’ll get serious about a drought, but here’s hoping that change is coming.
Anyway, I tried to get some living things, and got some cool, I think, bird pictures. The small brown one might be living in one of our birdhouses.
Hope you enjoy these images. I’m being careful these days not to post too many large images on this blog, as I’m approaching my memory limit, but here are more images from my hot garden.
Happy Fourth, and I hope you’re staying cool!
