this is the temp at noon!!!
this was the temp at 8:30 am AND 8:30 pm!!!!
i spent the whole weekend in "the virgin islands" - either sitting & reading & working in the flower beds (i pulled all the weeds, added a bunch of dirt & pruned the oleander bushes), talking on the phone with a friend, or swinging with jonathan & faith! i did spend a little time in "mexico" with my friend betty sunday afternoon because she wouldn't come to "the virgin islands" with me!!!!!!!
the poor grass --- even though i water, it's so hot & we've had no rain....... :o(
this is where the bluebonnets were this spring - the next "crop" of flowers to come up here are black eyed susans. usually this flower bed is FULL of them, but this year only a few came up here - on the other side of the back door there's another flowerbed that usually NOTHING grows in - this year there were lots of bluebonnets & black eyed susans in it!!!! i think the reason they didn't come up on the other side is because there wasn't very much dirt left. well, that's all solved so i'll plant some seeds for next year. it's too hot to plant any new plants & we NEVER get any rain, so the color will have to come from the pinwheels!!! plus they look sort of tropical colored. i need to get a kiddy pool & put some sand around it, but the water would just get too hot & the stray neighborhood cats would use the sand for a litter box, so i'll just pass on that idea!!!!
they're so much fun to watch!!!!
it was a great holiday weekend
but now i'm back in texas & have to go to work tomorrow!!!! at least it's a short work week & i can go back to "the virgin islands" next saturday!!!!!!!!
