Yes I Know It's Hot Outside

But if you don't come outside with me you'll miss the view!


Just look at that wisteria reaching for the sunshine.

Puffy clouds on a summer day.

Do you think it will rain?


Spotted this butterfly from inside the house.

I came outside to look at her and she didn't seem to mind.


The pennywort is filling in very nicely in the path.

Little baby frogs or toads jump all around here when you walk by.


Do you remember studying about Pavlov's dogs?

These are Paul's fish.

Same thing.




I just love a summer day!

  3. Your pond with the waterfall is just beautiful. Lots of pretty gold fish. Ours use to come up like that, but too many critters have scared them down deeper.

  6. Fish, frogs and butterflies. You've got such a cool wildlife habitat right in your own yard! Does your kitten go out by the pond?

    I think you should take a vacation to California to beat the heat, it's been beautiful and unusually cool the last few days(70's-80's instead of 90's plus)! And we're having a blogger's gathering in October. Oklahoma's not far. ;)

  19. Morning Stacey! Refreshing pictures!!lol I noticed several of these pretty butterflies the other day around our butterfly tree (go figure!lol) although we never had this color before? I must find some "pennywort" I just love that ground cover but didn't know that's what it was called (thank you!) and as always I adore your pond!!!! Stay cool - have a great weekend - Sincerely, Jeannette

  20. Beautiful pictures, Stacey. I envy Paul his fish. We can't have any, because raccoons were eating them for midnight snacks. :(

  21. I love the sound of running water and I have always wanted a water feature in the garden. Your pond is so pretty and the garden looks lush! It has at least temporarily cooled off here in MIchigan a bit. I just got up and it is 58 outside and I think the high is supposed to be 80 today:>) Yay!

  22. You and your camera certainly did a great job in drawing me outside this morning to see your beauty. Outstanding pictures of well cared for grounds. I like the one of the summer sky and clouds. Beautiful post!

  24. Good Morning Stacey ~

    This is such a lovely post...I can almost hear the clinking of ice cubes in our virtual glasses of lemonade. My favorite part is the wisteria reaching for the sun...simply lovely.

    Stay cool my friend and have a wonderful weekend.

  28. Hi Stacey,

    It has been so hot!! Everything is growing like a weed though...our grass has slowed down some so my hubbie doesn't have to mow as often. Your pond is so beautiful..I would love to have one but I'm deathly afraid of frogs...so I'll just admire yours! LOL Have a great weekend!!
