Cardinal babies playing in the sprinkler. There are 2 one is in the lower right of this pic.
Right now it is 104.
Those cardinal babies are so cute. I've been looking for signs around here, but haven't seen any babies even though we have an adult pair at our bird bath every day.
The squirrel in my yard hollowed out a cool place in a planter and now he's in big trouble for uprooting a favorite plant I just bought at Antique Rose Emporium's sale.
Cute pictures, Plantmaven! 102 here, everything starting to look bad...and yikes, it's only June.
What great pictures. Love to catch those little slices of wild life "life".
You don't often capture pics like that :).
Wow! That squirrel says it all. We had our 90 degree day yesterday and now we're back to the 70's, thankfully. Hang on, plantmaven--winter's comin'! Eventually...
omg that squirrel is too funny!
my "thats hot" photos would be of my new dawn roses flush of burnt brown buds! Blech.
One of the few things still blooming is Jethro Tull coreopsis.
Crepe myrtles and zinnias are also.
On the far right you can see a tad of purple, which is what is left of the tall larkspur. I am still collecting seeds, so I have not pulled it out.
But like you the roses look toasty. Part of that is the thrips. Terrible this year. A friend told me the folks at the Antique Rose Emporium said they see clouds of them this year.
I've never seen a squirrel do that. Thanks to you, he found a cool spot alright. Cute.
I think that is two different squirrels. The one in the first pic. looks longer than the 2nd one.
lol - he probably eats at their feeders, might as well lounge in their birdbath.
The first squirrel might be a rock squirrel and the second a fox squirrel. We had rock squirrels in the yard for the first time this spring. Rock squirrels are darker and must get really hot in the sun. They apparently found my yard too challenging since they burrow in the ground and so they moved on.
It's headed for 107o today! Yikes! That's hot.
Pardon the joke but "He's just a squirrel, trying to cool off his nuts!"
Yesterday was hot, today is even hotter...
I loved your squirrel picture! I WISH I could add something to topic but oh dear, this summer we have been struggling to get to 60. Almost July and the flower planters and window boxes around town look unhappy.
