We reached 90 officially. I am melting! Trying to stay cool with a one room airconditioner and fans here in the studio. Yesterday I went out for one hour made every effort to stay in the shade and I got burned slightly. I have had enough sun for my lifetime and more. Now I wear #50. I guess it is time to break out the bottle and start using it daily. I took some great shots of the irises, rhodies and the largest pink flowering bush I have ever seen. It smells so lovely and is full of bees! So we keep our distance. At night it just shimmers and is so pretty.

There is quite a variety of irises because I love them. Here are a couple of pics of them.

There are a few different rhodies too but this one is my favorite!

I wanted to share this link with you it is all about creating ATC's (artist trading cards)


Enjoy your day or evening and stay cool if things are HOT where you are! I am going through tons of water and iced tea.


  1. Beautiful flowers. I'll trade you some of our cold for some of your heat. It is only in the 50's here and rainy, we also just had huge thundar!

  2. Thanks Marlene! I wish you could send some cool air my way. We are supposed to drop to 70's in a few days. I am looking forward to that. I am sure the plants will like it too.
