Just Cats: Hot as hell… On Pets And Tricks

0 0

 It’s so hot these last few days that you work about 20 minutes in the gardens and then give up. It’s stifling hot…unbearable.

So in-door projects are getting some attention and the a/c is on full blast.

These two staying cool on the stairs to the loft.

One thing we can do for the wildlife is keep the three baths filled with cold water but that’s it. They don’t come to feeders until the sun is down these days and we only offer black sunflower seeds in the summer months.

I’ve been keeping my raccoon friend fed at night and the bunny gets lettuce and seed, too. Oh, and the odd pot of pansies. lol

My dahlias have gone nuts…budding and blooming like crazy. It’s so exciting to grow them and have them at their best just as other flowers are looking tired. I check on them three times a day like a lunatic but I have to be sure the blooms don’t get attacked by bugs after all the work of getting them here. If the bugs are on them I cover the blooms with organza bags. Although…as blooms appear that’s becoming a bit of a chore. They may be on their own soon.  Vases and mason jars are holding the mature blooms and keeping the potting shed and home looking pretty. Thank God the heat has gotten rid of the earwigs. They’ve gone under ground with the fairies. lol

Here’s some colour for you…

Youngest daughter Allie heading home with a few posies. The phlox are nice to add to a vase of dahlias just for the fragrance alone.

All our nesting birds have fledged now but some still stay around the property. I’m so glad they are out of the houses as they would be like little ovens these days. The last to leave was a beautiful family of House Wrens.

How is your weather? Canada may have the coldest winters but holy cow I bet we keep up with other countries if not surpass them with our summer heat.

I’m heading out for a cool drive in the car and find a Dairy Queen. I’ll leave you a little posie of shrub dahlias.
