The Old Maids don't mind

It's been brutally hot today. The temp combined with the humidity pushed the "feels like" index to 104 degrees at 3 p.m.

Needless to say, I didn't get my steps in today. I did walk down to the garden spray a little water on some of the thirsty  squash and tomatoes.

I snapped another picture of the old maids that border the garden on the south side. They don't seem to mind the heat. The jalapenos seem to like it steamy as well.

Not much to say tonight. The weatherman promises that it will cool down next week to the low 90s. I hope he's right.

  1. Beautiful photo. We had about a 5 minute rain storm just long enough to turn the street into a sauna.

  2. I love this picture...so bright and colourful...the name of the flowers don't do them justice. I hate this heat and humidity.

  3. Amazing that jalapeno and old maids love the heat. Says a lot about their determination, hardiness.

  7. Sprinkles here in Portland. Clear skies would be nice but considering the weather elsewhere I won't complain.

  9. The climate is getting crazy everywhere, and it affects our health and mood. I would say God is angry with us people for having violated the rules of His Creation.
    Lovely flowers! The entire picture is stunning.

  11. I'm sweating just reading this! It's been a warm week here too but nothing like you had. Yesterday it cooled into the 70's and 60's last night. Hope it gets better soon!
