Want a "Quickie" ? Today 7.16.13
It is HOT HOT HOT today, even here in the Gardens at Waters East on the shores of Lake Michigan. Decided very early this morning to water the young vegetable plants and the many flowers in pots so they can survive this heat. This is not my kind of weather!
While working in the gardens, a new visitor appeared. It is new to this area first seen this Spring by one of the neighbors. The Thirteen Striped Gopher paid no attention to me. Either I do not spend enough time in the gardens so it didn’t know what or who I am, or I spend so much time in the gardens that it thinks I am just part of the scenery! The gopher was five feet away when the photos were taken and it just kept eating away.
Took only a few of photos, just too hot and too humid to be outside.
Enjoy a short HOT & HUMID trip around the gardens today.

Easy to tell the humidity is high
there is little "definition" between the sky and Lake Michigan.
Almost looks as if there is no lake!
The Lemon Tree loves this weather
producing many lemons.

NOTE: Since this Blog is meant to be an accurate journal of the gardens;
no photos are “staged”, “arranged”, or ”photo-shopped” in anyway.
What is posted – is what it here. It is what it is.
