Friday Flower Bloggin'


The gardens at Hereford Light in North Wildwood, NJ.

It's going to be another scortcher today. 100 degrees is predicted and worse for tomorrow. The heat index is to be 115.

I'lll either have to cut my grass at 7am or wait another week until it cools down. Janine, next door cut the west side as she was doing her daughter's and there is just a little bit of mine that adjoins. I need to do the lawn between my house and Janine's. I weeded yesterday morning. My flowerbeds on the west side were full of zoia grass and some kind of grass that looks like a corn stalk. It took me all morning and I had to stop when the sun got over the trees.

Time to get moving.

Hi Karol, It must be that we're having nearly the same temps in our area as you are. It is nearly unbelievable that when we just left our home a bit ago to meet some friends for dinner, our thermometer read 103 degrees. It is difficult to breathe well it seems to me, it feels like I just can't get enough air in my lungs. I have been concerned for my husband because he has stage 3 Emphysema. It has been very surprising to both of us that he doesn't seem to be struggling too much right now. AND, we're both so thankful for that!! I think they said our heat index was going to be about like yours too - 115 degrees. I think I'm beginning to think a bit more about this global warming effect. Our winter was very mild and now this terible heat, it does seem like things are changing in the atmosphere. We're so thankful for air conditioning and I feel concern about those who don't have any. I pray that someone is checking on the elderly that may be suffering alone in an apartment or house with no air.

The crops in the fields are looking very pitiful. We haven't had any rain for a very long time now and some of the seeds didn't even germinate, they just shriveled up on the ground. The corn doesn't look like it will produce at all. There are big concerns for the farmers when the weather patterns change so drastically during what is normally the growing season. I'm praying for the elderly that are alone and for the crops to be saved.

You take care of yourself and don't stay outside too long. It is dangerous. Ruth
