Take a Break

This little phoebe has the right idea.  Relax!  She's sitting on the nest she built in the crook of the downspout on the north side of the house.  I only took the one photo as I didn't want to scare her.  Although they are quite bold and I don't think they scare very easily! 

It's another hot day.  I took the pool filter apart to clean it, also weed whacked around the planters where it's difficult to mow.  I did my outside work in the shade before 9:30AM.  Right now I am taking a tea break and writing this on the deck.  Later I'll go down to my studio which is the ground floor, on a slab so it stays pretty cool.

Happy first day of summer.

Thanks for stopping by.............*s*


  1. Happy Summer- I was out in the garden by 7am- I know what you mean- out early and out late... like the slugs, they were out late and we placed some beer to see if they would take the bait and they did!

  2. When I had my lavender farm, I'd get out there at 5:30 am, sometimes it would get over 100 and one three week period we were over 115. I had to water three times a day, just about killed me, but I saved the plants. Hope Meredith is giving those slugs cheap beer. Ha.

  3. I just did some mowing this morning, early while it was still fairly cool. You've got the right idea.

  4. Hi Meredith.....early is the way to go...get those slugs drunk and drowned!

    Hi Linda....I know what you mean about water more than once a day. I also hope Meredith is using the cheap stuff!

    Hi Elna...thanks for stopping by.

    Hi Lori.....get the wseaty stuff over with early and enjoy the rest of the day!
