Summer heat is here,
and the roses drink it up.
Pale ones showing off.
The sunflowers are still blooming too. These sunflowers don't have seeds that attract the birds, which I kind of thought they would, since they are volunteers grown from sunflower seeds in the bird feeder.
Since summer is when I hibernate as much as possible, I go out in the morning before the sun comes up. At 04:45 I jump in the pool and do whatever I can to get my heart going, mostly kicking. I do some arm waving around, but, as the doctor recommended... nothing above the nipples. Geez, I can't wait to be able to do real swimming again!
