That Other Lady recently posted some gorgeous photos on her blog showing her yard, flowers, and cat.
(You can check them out HERE)
She said she'd love to see some of our summer photos so off I went to take pictures of my yard.
Hmmm...no hydrangeas. No pretty kitty. No sheets on the line.
Throwing my "Pollyanna" hat on, I worked to find something good about my summer yard.
“Oh, yes; the game was to just find something about
everything to be glad about—no matter what 'twas”

Summers in my part of the country are very hot, mainly because it is THE DESERT.
We have lots of rock landscaping to conserve water, but we have some grass for the dogs to play on, too.
We occasionally have summer storms to cool things off...yay!
My tomato plants are still producing, but they are starting to look very wilted and brown from the heat.
We have flowers, but they are definitely not as beautiful as That Other Lady's flowers!
As for a fluffy kitty that poses for the camera...nope...don't have that, either.
But, I do have my Bruster who was forced to sit still for my photo.
He didn't like it. Sumatra needs to teach him a thing or two about posing.
I begged a little more and at least he perked up his ears and pulled in his snaggle teeth.
So...what's happening in your summer?
Are you busy sewing? Don't forget the blog hops coming up!
There are still openings for Rush Hour...let me know if you want to join the fun!
