The Week In Seven Photos

It was a hot week, not record-setting, but 94 degrees in May is way too excessive!!

The deer were running their errands by 8:00 a.m.

The hummingbirds were parched.

Great Blue Herons had to cool off hot toes in the lake.

The bees were hiding.

Days spent hanging around and waiting for a breeze that never arrived.

Storm clouds in the distance, but it was even too hot for the raindrops and they refused to arrive.

Little ones were seeking shade by mom and dad.

    1. Thank you!๐Ÿ™‚ After my many complaints about the cold winter one would think that I could refrain from complaining about warm weather, but it was TOO HOT!!๐Ÿ˜ Gabby wondered why we had to be out in the heat, since we hide in the air-conditioned house when itโ€™s like this in August.๐Ÿ˜

        We don’t have A/C so being outside under a tree maybe catching a little breeze is the best place for me and LM during our summer.
        And I understand the weather complaints. You just want clement for a while! ๐Ÿ˜€

      2. After this week Iโ€™ve decided to purchase an outdoor fan for a little breeze.๐Ÿ˜ We had to cut down two trees that provided great shade for our decks and I havenโ€™t quite adjusted yet.๐Ÿ™‚

        Oh no! Our worst summer ever was after a heavy tree pruning in the winter! Never again! ๐Ÿ™‚

      4. We have planted two new trees, but it will be years before they provide any shade and the deer have already eaten all the leaves on one of the trees.๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you!๐Ÿ™‚ I was not going to let the weather keep me indoors after a long winter, but it was close. I think we were above the average temperature for the month, but it was so hot last week that I canโ€™t remember what the rest of the month was like.๐Ÿ˜

        Oh, gosh! Good luck! At least we don’t live south near the Gulf Coast. They really get hammered.

      2. The storms seem worse each year and the patterns more unpredictable. The latest storm, Alberto, reached all the way to Lake Michigan as a tropical depression. Rare for that to happen and especially in May.

        Indeed they are. Over the past year, Maine has seen it’s share of weird storms.

    94 is way too hot for May! I like the suspended catkin – it is always fun to come across these invisibly hung bits.

    1. Iโ€™m so looking forward to actual spring weather tomorrow.๐Ÿ˜ Gabby is still in her stroller for another week and did not understand why she was flying along in the stroller as I raced back to the house for the camera to capture the catkin (thanks for the identification!!).๐Ÿ˜

    Great collection and captions – for August! It has been similar in our corner of AB, with a switch from winter straight to summer. That said, it’s turned cold and rainy the last day or two. A prolonged mildly warm and sunny spell would be nice…
    Have a good weekend – the hockey has been entertaining!

    1. Thank you and thankfully our August weather is over this weekend!๐Ÿ™‚ I finally took the top off the Jeep and, of course, itโ€™s chilly this morning and Gabby will need a sweater.๐Ÿ™‚ The hockey has been fantastic and I was not expecting this type of series. Now the Capitals need to win two at home and Iโ€™m still waiting for that hat trick. Enjoy your weekend!๐Ÿ™‚

    A hot week by you, with lots of colourful nature going on. Weather’s a bit all over the place here, hot and humid, then cool and grey, still, nature has burst out.

    1. Everything looks beautiful right now and that provided the extra motivation to stay outside with the camera. It was surprising to have it that hot and Iโ€™m glad we we have a break from the heat for the next week.๐Ÿ™‚

    Really enjoyed this week in review, ACI, as I always do. Your photos are such a pleasure, and the captions had me chuckling through the whole beautiful, albeit hot, week. The Great Blue Heron and the bee were my favorite photos, but as always, I loved every one of them. Great swans, fun deer, delightful hummingbird. And lilacs, a joy.

    1. Thank you and Iโ€™m glad you enjoyed the week in review!๐Ÿ™‚ It was a shock to have it so hot, but thankfully the local wildlife encouraged me to leave the air-conditioned house. The swans are always a joy to watch and the heron has been difficult to capture this year since it appears his attitude problem has returned.๐Ÿ˜
