Michigan has living up to its true hot summer weather for July! We have many days when the temperature was over 100. With such scorching heat, we took refuge in the cooling air of our house, and barely went outside.
This is one of the flowers in my wild flowers mixed box! I love the yellow petals with maroon center. It has a delicate stem and continuously blooms throughout the summer. Though this coreopsis tinctoria is an annual flower, it will self sow and easy to grow.
Look up, way way up there and you will always find pretty cloud to see. Don't you remember when you were little and toys were rare, you played the guessing game of cloud formation? Those were simpler days, and simple game but so good for your mind!
This beautiful color of the sky was taken at 5:00 o'clock in the morning. As you can tell, it will be a hot day. We were blessed with two weeks of heat waves, and of course, we all complained as it is in our human nature.
After many scorching days of heat wave, we finally have two days of rain, and the earth loves it. The rain brought the dried yellow grass back to life, and I found mushrooms shooting up around the yard.
Early in spring, I invested one dollar buying this box of wild flower mix from the dollar store, and waited for the weather to stable before planting them. I did nothing special beside watering the area.
