It is so HOT !

Hope we get some rain soon before everything burns up. My flower pots in the shade seem to be holding up to the heat the best. Even with frequent watering all the other flower beds are wilting.
(me too for that matter)

It is so hot even this little frog went looking for a cool place in the shade this morning. He found a cool spot in the dog's water bowl on the back porch. Poor old dog got a surprise :)
