Today is soooo nice, been outside all morning. So cool and beautiful. But no rain in the west valley yet, can smell it, but not a drop YET

We got a couple drops here in Havasu. It sprinkled for a couple of minutes. Very refreshing. Temps topped out in the low 90's today. Just opened up the house as is currently 86 outside with a nice little breeze.

I lost two of my potted figs last week. Most of my little orchard was looking stressed, which resulted in me covering most of my inground trees with shade cloth for a couple of days. Today I uncovered them and they are looking great.

Yesterday was GREAT wasn't it??? I turned off the AC after having it on for only a week. So nice! It was 63 when I got up and only got to 84. Wonderful stuff, especially considering I spent most of the day digging and doing hard labor with the irrigation system. No rain in N Scottsdale, but I could see plenty of it just to the west.

This morning is great too. Nice to get a break! Every person I talked to out and about yesterday commented as well. My nasturtiums, petunias, and geraniums will think they've gotten a reprieve, LOL.

Take care all,
