  3. Nicely done! I like that you tie summer and autumn together that way. We wait all winter for summer, and then we complain about the heat and wait for winter.

    1. Looks like about 5 more triple digit days then a break for now. We won't see much fall till late September or later. That is if you can call 80 fall temperatures. Air conditioning makes it work. Workers have been putting new landscaping this week. I do not know how they can dig those holes in rocky soil in this heat.

    1. Thanks, Milan. I took a walk and actually saw birds just sitting with their beaks open.

    1. So true! My Hubby would like to live where it never gets above 55 F. I am a 75 F person.
