Summer Stress

We talked to a Florida neighbor on the phone the other night and he commented that Michiganders were coming to Florida this summer to cool off.  That isn't far from the truth.  This has been a record-breaking July with a week of temps in the low 90s and night temps in the high 70s.  Several days were record breakers.  It was the hottest July since they began keeping records.  Even the rain amount was high, but it came all in 3 storms.
Garden from the deck
The extreme weather stressed my garden and it was too hot for me to work on it.  I watered a few times but had to be careful of water bills with keeping the pool filled, too.  This was in late July but with the cooler weather in August the weeds have just taken over.  I have been working a little on bringing back the rose garden.  I am hoping the lady who worked with me last year on the garden will be here to help me again before fall.  She has indicated that she will be here once the weather cools down a little.

Meanwhile, we are enjoying the pool and air conditioning.
A pool keeps the youngsters amused for hours!!!
