Appalachian Phrase of the Day

Passiflora or otherwise known as Passion Flower. 


Y'all it's hot....as in you could fry an egg on the sidewalk kind of hot.  It's the kind of hot that makes the door handle of the car untouchable, never mind the oven roasting effects of the car interior.  

It's not the kind of weather I enjoy, but it does come with some great descriptive phrases.  


Such as......

It's hotter than the Devil's armpit.  

It's hotter than a billy goat with a blow torch.  

It's hotter than a June bride.  

It's hotter than heck and half of Georgia.  

It's hotter than young love on a park bench.  

It's hotter than a $2 pistol.  

It's hotter than a firecracker lit at both ends.  


Feel free to chime in with your own sayings.

  5. Hello, I have not heard all these hotter than phrases. A car sitting in the hot sun does feel awful.
    Wishing you a happy day and a great week ahead!

  8. What a gorgeous passion flower! Does it grow near you? I'd think you are too far north.

    1. These actually grow in our pastures. They are gorgeous and produce a "fruit" on a vine. Sometimes call Maypop.

  10. That post is hot! )). That poor Passion flower looks a little frayed. I have seen an egg fried on a sidewalk before, in our hometown in Eastern Washington (State)....our kids never quite believed that story (because we lived in much cooler Oregon when they grew up). I’m glad for them and for us that we moved!

  11. Oh my. That is such a beautiful flower and excellent capture! Is it a wildflower? I've never seen one before. As for the "it's hot out there" phrases, the one that comes to mind and my husband uses, can't be shared here (lol). Enjoy your day!

  12. Passion flower? Hmmmm. Not sure I know that one. Must start looking for it. And, yes, it has been pretty hot, over 80 just about every day for weeks, and often over 90.
