It must have rained last night. The grass is wet. A small puddle of water was seen on the neighbor's stone patio across the street. The weather guy says it was less than .03". I'll take what I can get. The humidity stands at 94%. It's just 73 degrees.

As I walked the yard this morning, I realized that I've been neglecting the gardens for several weeks now. It's too hot in the afternoon to do much. I thought I saw a hummingbird yesterday, but it turned out to be a mosquito. They swarm me whenever I walk outside. My welts have bites. The yard will just have to manage on its own. The grass will be mowed eventually. Maybe.

Photos taken this morning show the moisture that hangs in the air.

The forecast calls for more afternoon or evening showers with a high of 93. Tomorrow will be awful at 97 degrees. Summer is really here.

Feeling you here! Hot and muggy! We got a rain this afternoon the rain barrel filled back up half way or more. The ground here is more like cement than soil.

I can fully relate! We're on day 16 of 90+ degrees in Atlanta, and by noon it's pretty much unbearable. Even the lantana is getting crispy!

Hi Tom: Been out of it for a few days, just read your last 8 or so posts. Good Work, I like your gardening style is like ours. It just happens.

Enjoy your gardens,

Thanks for braving the humming-mosquitoes to take the photos. I always like to see the big picture as well as close ups.

Our mosquitoes have been bad,too.
