Life in the Yard: Dry Hot Kansas is Still Green, Blue, Yellow
Can't Complain. It was average 108 degrees this week, plus the "feels like" index (which should be personal to each individual). My own heat index registered it feeling like 129 degrees.
I am reading, trying not to weed the garden, ignoring pets' offers for walk, and offering thanks for air conditioning. honestly. while lying about,
I watched Topaz, movie re: Cuba/US /Russia/Spy-- and realized whoever conceived of Mad Men must have watched this movie first.
Various lives in the yard, including a red-tailed hawk, a daddy longlegs cluster (?) - a hunourmous brown recluse in the tub, a flock of geese flying south? baby bluebirds, along with other sweet animal and plant life.
pics are large files- so click to view well. i use a variety of cameras, mostly Canon, and most pics are untouched (other than i reduce size) unless i decide to make posters (obvious) with them, like the bank of sunflowers below or the stunning feathers of juvenile birds at bottom....
