It’s not over yet. There is still plenty of time for summer fun.
We all scream for ice cream!

You could surf…
I totally agree.

Early morning at the beach
Late summer hydrangea
I wouldn’t go so far as to say this is a real blog. It’s really turned out to be a place for me to display curated pictures from the World Wide Web.
Curl up with a good book.
Water, water. water your plants.
There is a lot of Olympic coverage on tv to keep you happy inside. It was 90 degrees at 9:00 a.m.at my place this morning . It’s a scorcher.
You can read a great book. I don’t have any recommendations except someone told me Elephant Company : The Inspiring Story of an Unlikely Hero and the Animals Who Helped Him Save Lives in World War II is fascinating. Written by Vickie Croke and having read the New York Times Book Review I think I will have to get to this.
Water your garden and potted plants. You loved them in May so you have to help them get through this heat spell.
Hydrangeas are the definition of summer at its best. Here are some I love. Artwork by Martha Marlette (marthamarlette.com).

I found this on Ello.
Given the hot weather it’s the best option.
Summer fruit and ice cream
Ice cream is especially good this time of year.

I know there are some repeats. I’ll need to hang out on tumblr and see what I can find.
Plumbago which I fell in love with in Bermuda.
You’ll need these to protect your beautiful eyes.
There is no heat that compares to the heat of sitting in a boat with NO WIND.
This actually looks appealing at this stage of our heat wave
Rose of Sharon which I adore.They bloom forever.
I’d like to sit on the third step for the entire day.
You could opt to stay indoors and play with the dollhouse
This is how the dogs feel. I ran into a golden who had been shaved. He was cool but weird looking.
After your match you can dive into the pool.
