Could use some flowers around here, about now.
Some in Oz are suffering 'cos of the heat right now.
Sadly that big yellow sun is crispifying the garden at the moment. I would like him to back off a bit.
Yes it's not only we humans that suffer when it is hot. Our poor plants don't have airconditioning to keep them cool and safe.
Lovely poems, but at the moment I agree with EC, things are beginning to get crispy here too. Mostly lawns so far, since they are on a schedule for watering. Individual gardens fare a little better because the people get out there with their hoses.
