Long Hot Summer
So, it has been a while. I have still been designing projects but since my studio does not have a/c, I have not been spending much time in there.
May and June were hot and dry. Even watering twice a day, I lost the garden. Everything went crisp. The squash blooms would open in the morning and by evening they would be dried out and falling off. Very disappointing.
There were no wild flowers and the hummingbirds were trying to get nectar from the marigolds. It was sad to see. So, I made up a couple of wine bottle hummingbird feeders. The four pair of birds we have here were battling the wild honey bees for the sugar water. I tried to get some pictures but, my camera had dead batteries and my phone is old and does not take great action pictures.
We are finally getting rain. Every day we are getting big, loud thunderstorms.
One of the dogs spends more time in the bath tub than anyplace else. I guess someone told her it was the safest place to be during a storm.
I have been working out of town and will be next week, also. When I get back I post some of the things I have designed over the past few weeks. Until then, best to you all and stay safe.
