Heat Wave

Song - Heat Wave by Martha and the Vandellas

102° on Sunday

My already dry garden is frying.

Leaves on the trees are burning and turning brown.

I am placing saucers of cool water around the yard for the songbirds.

Mika is enjoying that!

 I have turned on my fountain just so I can hear the sound of water.

That makes me feel several degrees cooler.

(Don't worry, it recirculates the water so it's still legal for now in CA)

While swimming yesterday afternoon, Mr. B noticed an unusual bird in the tree near the creek.

I was able to run inside and get my camera to capture a few shots.


 It appears that he is a White-tailed Kite who was stretching his wing and kept a careful eye on me.

 And within seconds, off he flew......

 Several days ago I spotted this guy in a tree above the creek.

 It's HOT and the raptures have arrived......

 Meanwhile it's time to go back in the pool and cool off!

Stay cool dear friends!
