Blue Monday

Smiling Sally
Smiling Sally invites you to join her for the best  Blue Monday show in town. She welcomes you to meet her at http://smilingsally.blogspot.com or just click her image. 

Trust me the temperature here is not 80 degrees.  We are literally burning up in Texas.  All this next week supposed to be from 105 up.


The flowers no longer look like this.  So sad seeing everything just drying up.  Not possible to water enough on restrictions.

So sorry, you are having such a hot summer. We have drought conditions where I live. So far we do not have water restrictions. I water my flower garden, so I still have flowers. Probably not much longer, though.

The Texas Bluebonnets are so pretty. I feel so bad for everyone in the drought stricken areas. We are going to be the same if we don't get some rain this winter. Back in the late 80's and early 90's we were on water rationing for about 4 years. I pray you don't have to suffer this for that long!

I heard that over 52% of the country is experiencing drought conditions. I know that Florida is; however, where I live in Tampa, it's rained and rained! Happy Blue Monday, La Voice.

For all the beauty in Texas, it must be so hard to live through the heat and the droughts. My heart goes out to you all. Stay cool!

The extreme heat and lack of rain seem to affect everyone. I love the pretty blue flowers you have shown.

We are on day 60 of the drought--everything looks awful!!I'm trying to keep my new Japanese Maple alive!! I featured an eagle today too. Have a good week.

Wow, 105. I remember a trip out West a few years ago and the temps were 107. When we stopped at a rest stop the signs would warn us of rattle snakes. Yikes. I walked to an overlook and I could hardly breathe. I hope your weather improves soon LV.

I commented on your PS post too. Thank you for always remembering me even when I am not able to visit.

Love, Jeanne

It's really strange how the weather can vary. Even here in Sweden some parts has had loads of rain but I have to water my plants. I hope you don't suffer too much from the heat yourself! Take care!

Dropping by to say thank you for visiting my blog. Well, here, we are missing the sun. It is summer, but we still use the heater because it is cold. It rains all the time. BUt the flowers are still blooming:)

Sorry to here it is still so hot there. Hard to keep a garden going when you are that shot and not rain. Hope things cool off for you, Laura

I love that wall clock. The flowers, too, and I'm sorry to hear of the water restrictions.

Here in The Philippines, there has been one storm after anothe wreaking havoc, especially in the larger main island of Luzon. However, here in Bohol, the rains have been sporadic, but the forceful and howling gusts of winds can be unnerving.

Nonetheless, cheers, Sally!

Wonderful shots. It is too hot there.

I hope you get some cooler temperatures and perhaps some 'blue' rain?

Rovie Aguis said...

The flower looks beautiful and it is so sad to know that they are affected by summer.

Lovely blue flowers.
Keep your health during the hot summer there.

Thanks for your visit :)

I love that clock!

Sad hot and dry summer everywhere! We heard on the radio, on the way to Kansas, that even Oregon is experiencing unreasonable hot temps! I hope it ends soon.

I am trying to get my four o'clocks to grow in a patio planter! I carefully give them a drink each day! A few of them have started to peek thru the soil!
The blue flowers were so lovely! I know I was sad when my big rose bush just dried up. Makes me unhappy! :(

Stay cool sweet lady! Hugs Anne
