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!πŸ™‚ 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!!😁 Gabby wondered why we had to be out in the heat, since we hide in the air-conditioned house when it’s like this in August.😁

      1. 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! πŸ˜€

    1. Thank you!πŸ™‚ 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 can’t remember what the rest of the month was like.😁

      1. 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.


    1. I’m so looking forward to actual spring weather tomorrow.😁 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!!).😁

  1. 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!πŸ™‚ I finally took the top off the Jeep and, of course, it’s chilly this morning and Gabby will need a sweater.πŸ™‚ The hockey has been fantastic and I was not expecting this type of series. Now the Capitals need to win two at home and I’m still waiting for that hat trick. Enjoy your weekend!πŸ™‚


  2. 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 I’m glad you enjoyed the week in review!πŸ™‚ 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.😁
