It's Summer

The temps soared into the low 90's F today like someone flipped a switch. It feels more like July than May! The dogs just mosey around the yard, stand under the hose, drink a lot and spend most of the time napping. When they twitch, I wonder if they are dreaming of playing in the snow?

I'd forgotten about this video of them in the snow a couple of years ago, but I found it and uploaded it to youtube this week.

I have so much gardening I want to do, but I have to pace myself when it is this hot. Even watering, weeding and some transplanting seems like a major workout. My teatime treat to revive me has been an icy glass of Pimm's and ginger ale with some lemon and mint!

Yesterday, I tried to give the dining room a summery look as I tidied up. I put some glass net floats in the wire basket for a centerpiece. You can see one in the above picture. I always thought of them as Japanese net floats, but looking up their history online starting at Wikipedia, it turns out they were first made by the Norwegians. The two I have on the table actually are Norwegian, based on their markings.

I love that even though Silas has his own tennis ball in his mouth, he still wants to play with Saffy's red one!! Saffy does the rolling in the snow thing just like Peri, what fun they have!!
Oh a nice Pimms, definitely a good idea in the heat!!

I was so glad we had the rainstorm during the night last night, as the garden got a much more thorough watering. Hopefully it rained for you too! The temperatures have now come down and it looks like we'll have a nice weekend.
