Summer Heat

These succulents seem to be doing really well even though they get a good dose of hot afternoon sun.
 I love the way Chris Sorensen's metal flowers stand out in the sun. They also cast such fun shadows.

There is a warm summer breeze outside and we are thankfully back below the one hundred degree mark. Let's hope we stay in the nineties and don't  see another 112 this summer. After all,  the nineties do seem more bearable after the recent run of triple digits.  At any rate, the warm weather makes for quick clay work with careful monitoring of swamp cooler drafts and plastic to avoid warping and cracking from drying too fast. 

I hope everyone is staying cool and having a great summer.
