We’re in the midst of several continuous days with over 100 degree temperatures and may break the May record. Yippee, that’s never good news in Phoenix. Two more days until the Obama Event at ASU where we will be standing outside in the beating sun for several hours waiting to get through security. I’m hoping–and thinking–it will all be worth it in the end but…with the constant chatter about it from the local media…it’s a little hard to not be slightly apprehensive. And the predicted traffic situation is a whole other issue.
These flowering plants won’t be lasting too much longer in this heat. One last blaze of glory and they’ll dry up.
The vinca will probably survive and thrive throughout the summer with a lot of water.
And I was excited to see today that our mesquite tree, native to the desert, had blooms on it. Although we’ve had the tree for years, we’ve never seen it bloom before (in fact, I’ve never really noticed other mesquites blooming either).
Today’s fisheye experiment.
Think cool, calming thoughts for us.
