trying to care for yard in this 'weather'
I made it back from California and Arizona just in time for this heat wave. Went from 100 plus temps to high humidity and misery. It has taken a week for me to catch up on the mowing and some of the weeding. Seems everytime it cools off enough to head outdoors, it starts with the thundering and lightning and there is no way I'm able to work in the mid day heat.
The good thing is all these short thunder boomers and the warm day and night temperatures have made things grow. Up here in the mountains where it is cooler than some of the low lands things dont bloom as early, but this weather hit at the right time to boost the bloom. The clematis just opened the first buds this week but is loaded with buds and the roses opened first blooms last week. They are twice a large as last years flowers. But I wish it would cool off enough that I could just go out and stay there to enjoy it.
