The heat makes everything flower.
It got even a bit warmer today than it was yesterday, 29C (84,2F) but thankfully it will cool down considerable until tomorrow and we’ll get more normal but still warm temperatures. We will also most likely get huge thunderstorms with lots and lots of rain. I read on Facebook that it already has started in some places by the west coast. They haven’t repaired my telephone wires so I won’t get any lightning inside the cottage so that will make me like thunderstorms even more 🙂
It’s hotter than hell outside with a strong wind and my neighbor is mowing the lawn! I do hope he drinks lots of water otherwise he’ll get an enormous headache later on, if he’s lucky. It can be much worse if he dehydrate too much. I never have that problem that I feel the lawn absolutely must be moved, any time 🙂 I can always sow meadow flower seeds and enjoy that during summer 🙂
I never stopped by the pet store on my way home today, I had bought more things for the coming green house and renewed my lottery tickets and the heat was just so awful that I thought it could wait another week or so. Just thinking of getting out of the cool car when I really didn’t need to made me feel too hot 🙂 But we did take a walk when I came home, it was so warm that even Sune just stopped to lay down in the shadows every now and again.
Tomorrow morning, before the thunderstorms arrive I’ll plant my dahlias in the flower bed. They are potted at the moment and still rather small so I don’t think heavy showers will damage them. Well I could do it already this evening to be honest, the sun just has to go down a bit further so I won’t start boiling while doing it 🙂 I just can’t understand how You that lives in really hot places with temperatures above F survives 🙂 Don’t get me wrong, I love hot summer weather but this was just too much too early.
It’s time to get something cool to drink and then find a really windy spot in the shadows and just sit there for a while, I don’t have to worry about mosquitoes because the wind blows them away 🙂
Have a great day!
