It's not just hot, it's hawt

The temperatures here in Smalltownland have been boiling as of late. It has become unpleasant just to go outside and relax.



The dogs have taken to staying indoors as well. They go outside for a brief business moment and then they are right back inside. Who can blame them? Even the insects have taken to staying indoors. I found this Katydid resting on my cookbooks. Apparently, I need to dust them.



The heat is even taking a tole on the wildflowers.

I will say that the butterflies seem to be enjoying the weather. We have had an abundance of them on the farm this season.


How hot is it in your neck of the woods?

  2. Hi - I found your blog from Sandra's Thistle Cove Farm. I live in Lexington KY, and am soon moving to Casey Co (Liberty), and am now looking for a place to rent in the country. I've made a few contacts, and hope to rent a one-room cabin, with loft, from a Mennonite family. Will find out more about that next week, I hope. Good to see another transplant southern-gal in blog-world. Just thought I'd stop by and say Hello. Take care, from Lexington.

  3. It has cooled off here since last week when it was 105. Now we are sitting in the 80's which is unusual for this time of year. I don't even have the AC on and the front door is open....I'm happy with this crazy weather!

  11. Yes, unfortunately the temperature has been very close to yours lately. I think the entire eastern half of North America is being challenged!

  12. It's hot here too. Around 100, but I'm sure we don't have the humidity you do. But I would take the heat to be in Kentucky. Your pictures are gorgous despite the heat.

  15. This past week we've seen temps at 105 in the shade.
    Cooled down quite a bit today. It was actually tolerable.
