Here comes summer...


Last night at about 10:45pm summer officially arrived in our little corner of nw Okieland. Yep I had to turn on the Air-Con when it was still 78 degrees in the house and I was beginning to slowly steam!

Right now it is in the mid' 80's as you can see, with the hottest time of day not due until 5pm. So we have now officially made the switch from heat to air-con in our house.

But this is Oklahoma and it needs to keep us on our toes at all times....so tomorrow's predicted high is 50 - almost a forty degree drop overnight. Then we are bouncing right back up into the 70's on Friday and then back into the 80's over the weekend! I tell you the weather around here is totally POTTY!


Whilst I was out in the garden I also snapped a piccie of our Lilac Bush which is now in full blom and looking gorgeous. Now I am off to spray the darned hen-bit which is taking over large area's, re-pot my tomato plants and finally paint my toes....as sandal season is here!

Sarah, we've had similar weather patterns. I can't wait for my lilac bushes to bloom. I think it will be another month. Thanks for posting the photo, though. I can almost smell them!
