Something Pretty, Something Blue

It's July in Ontario. It's scorchingly hot. Ridiculously, indescribably hot.

Instead of posting pictures of my wilty, sun-stroked kids or of my frizzy hair and new crop of freckles, enjoy this photo of a queenly hollyhock. I'm too hot to post anything else.

  2. Isn't it awful?! It's so hot I walk outside and it feels like the heat is laying down on my skin. Gosh, I'm ready for fall!

  3. I'm almost jealous of the heat you guys are suffering (I said almost!) - summer is a complete washout here in the UK!

  4. Yesterday, our region (where the Knitty Gritty Homestead is located) was 46 degrees C which is 115 degrees F. Now that is a scorcher and made worse because it is made up of humidity.
    Too hot to do anything but sit under the shade of a tree by a cool, refreshing lake or river....

  5. I can relate ~ we have been suffering in Louisiana. It was almost unbearable when we had three weeks of no rain, but now that we are getting a bit of rain, I think we may make it. However, we are used to the hot weather...you on the other hand I would think are not!

  6. I know what you're saying! We don't have much humidity here but it does happen. And I don't care if you have humidity or not...115 degrees is HOT!! Here's hoping your day is full of popsicles!

  8. And CHICKENS PANT in this heat. You may have already known that, but I didn't. They pant! And drink bucketfuls of water. Poor things.

    You have hollyhocks? Have you ever made the hollyhock dolls? I want some hollyhocks for that very reason. Pretty pictures of them, like yours, would be nice too.
