I have seen enough days of 90 degree temps to last me for a long while! And, we need RAIN!!! I keep hearing reports of several towns nearby getting torrential downpours, and hurricane style winds, while we have nothing in the form of precipitation!
My daughter went to work yesterday, and found the building partially flooded- a leak in the roof, and heavy rains during the night. We had none of it - and we are a mere 10 miles away. The mountains that surround us, do a very good job of redirecting the rain clouds. It is almost like the clouds get stuck on the treetops and never float this way.
We did finally get a brief downpour of about 10 minutes yesterday - instead of cooling us off, it turned the evening into a total sauna!
I have managed to get in early morning rides while it is still cool enough for the horses (and me) but, have not managed to get down to the garden in a few days! After days of pickling, and freezing, and canning, and working with the crate of peaches the other night, the phrase from Gone With the Wind - "....tomorrow is another day..." is how I look at that garden lately!!!LOL
This has been one of my favorite teas lately - iced green tea, with fresh mint and lemon balm from the garden. My cool little green checked melamine iced tea spoon is from The Farm Chicks. Paired with a dark chocolate biscotti, and set on a vintage hand painted Lefton snack plate- time to sit back in the wicker rocker, on the porch, and rest for a while!!!
