Heating up Again

It has been fairly nice the last couple of days. When it comes to weather I'm a bit like Goldilocks. I don't like it too hot or too cold but just right. I like it about 19/20C in the 70F - warm enough to have my windows open with some fresh air coming in but not warm enough where I need the air conditioner or risk feeling sticky. It's back to that stickiness again. I went for a walk this morning and was quite sticky when I was done. Not pleasant lol. The air conditioner is back on. It's humid out. We did get some rain last night - storms maybe thought I didn't hear them. Middle son said his electricity went out for a couple of hours early morning.

Today I spent far too long running errands, trying to find something to give to a friend for her birthday. I did get chocolate but was looking for something a little more. I feel funny getting her wine as her job is as a wine specialist and she knows far more about wine than I ever could. I settled on a fun mug and a book I thought she might like as well as a mix of chocolate - British and European. We're going out for a late lunch tomorrow. Should be fun!

I've been trying to improve my flower pics the past couple days. If anyone knows anything about flowers could you please let me know if you recognise these ones?

There are some wonderful ones growing down by the lakeside. I wish I knew a little more about them!


  1. Hi Sharon, Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog. I have been a bit tardy in ref to my blog over the last month. My family all come from East Anglia, on my mum's side. So know it well. Like following your adventures. Christy

  2. I'm afraid I'm no help for identifying the flowers, but I do think they're lovely. It's rained here the last 3 days! Like you I'd like it not too hot and not chilly like we have, fingers crossed for a nice (but not too hot) July xx

  3. We have a lot of power cuts here too. June has been unseasonally windy so I am hoping for a better July.

  4. It's been very cold here for the last few days but looks like it will be a bit warmer today.

    Not sure about the top photo but the bottom one may be a thistle of some kind.....very pretty-x-

  5. I generally like to see the leaves, as well, to identify flowers. But, I believe the first flower is milkweed and the second is thistle.


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment.
