On a HOT summer night...

I took this one just as the sun was popping out from behind the trees in our backyard. It's now 80degrees in the house but the temp. outside is a balmy 92degrees.



I moved our hanging baskets of mini-belles to a shady place until the heat-wave passes and was quite surprised to find this bad boy on the patio screen. I don't know spiders, except that they scare the woo-hoo out of me, but this just looks like it could cause trouble--or pain--or both. So how is your summer going?

  1. Wow, that is hot! It was hot here yesterday, but this morning it is cool and wet. I love the smell of the air after the rain!

    My flowers and tomato plants are gone due to a horrific hail storm we had a few weeks ago. Boo-hoo. :(

    Hope you are feeling well!

  2. Ah, jojo, that's hot in most places, and I guess it's really hot where you live. Hope that heat wave moves right on by you (but doesn't get all the way to Detroit.)

    I am praying for you. Depression is such an unfair foe. So very unfair.

  3. Those flowers are very pretty. Not sure about that spider - all we have to worry about down here are banana spiders and brown recluse. that thing looks yellowish.

  5. Love the flower shots- the spider one not so much. I am still recovering from a spider bite I got about 5 weeks ago.

    It's hot here too!
    Pills for the depression I say! To get you over the hump! Keeping you in my prayers babe!

  10. Your sadness has lots of company. Flowers are magic, I'm glad to see those pics. The spider, I don't know, even just photos of one gives me the heebie jeebies.
    We've had 2 glorious days of summer...after 4,000 days of rain. So today, I'm good!!

  11. It's finally hot and not raining here. Not 104 hot, but hot for us.

    I'm not scared of spiders, but that one looks a bit creepy.

  13. Haven't had much really hot weather here this year. Cool and rainy. Not much time to get outdoors because it's always wet.

    Sorry about your bout of depression. I can relate. I've had the same problem lately. Hope you are feeling much better. Be sure to take your Vitamin D.

    Love all your flowers.

    Blessings,
    Mary
