Another day of high temperatures and we've been under heat advisories all week -- whew .... perhaps rain tonight or this weekend?
When I am home, I find dozens and dozens of bees surrounding the bit of water dripping from my air conditioning lines ... they too are in need of this vital element. With so little rain in the area, ponds and lakes diminishing, I wonder how the birds find sufficient water? My own bird bath -- not as pretty as this - filled in the morning - evaporates in an hour when it's so hot ...
Our volunteers return this morning to harvest the tomatoes, squash, melons and more that are ready ...we'll donate those to the food bank - already we've donated over 200 pounds of food!
Hope your day is cool --- and thank you for continuing to vote!
