“What dreadful hot weather we have!
It keeps me in a continual state of inelegance.”
– Jane Austen
I think today is the 12th or 13th day in a row of Houston area temperatures reaching over 100 degrees. Are these the dog days of Summer? I feel like I have no energy and not much enthusiasm to get out and about which isn’t good since my sore knee needs a bit of exercise to keep it moving. So Ms. Nellie II and I took a stroll through our local botanic gardens before noon today to see how the flowers are surviving this heat.
The blooms are doing fine thanks to a great gardening team at the gardens. I, on the other hand, am melting. Turn down the a/c I’m headed home to look for my misplaced elegance! Let me know how your garden grows.
