Summertime and The Livin' is Easy

A summer of record temperatures and whacky rain patterns was quickly forgotten with today's mild temps. Weeds were pulled, Tomato Art Fest beckoned, a walk into Brentwood for dinner - thank-you, God, for a short summer reprieve!

'Erin Rachel' Hibiscus

Black and Blue Salvia

Knockout rose with Black and Blue salvia

I had a little friend to keep me company while weeding this afternoon

Tea time for the hummer.

Golden Spirit Smoke Tree (Cotinus coggygria) 

With temps going from lower 80s to the lower 60s and a Saturday full of activities, by late afternoon the hammock could not be denied

Summertime and the livin' is easy.

Glad you have some cooler temps...and that you all got some rain. Did you go to the Tomato Fest? Our daughter did, waiting to hear reports.
Is your 'Erin Rachel' Hibiscus a tropical one..looks like it. Could use it in my family garden.
