According to my local weather man, by this time last year, North Texas had seven or eight days of 100+ degree weather. This year, we’ve enjoyed none, none! And I am loving it.
If you don’t have the pleasure of 100+ degree weather during your hot months, then I don’t know if you can really appreciate what I’m saying right now. Day after day of 100+ degree weather is just oppressive. It’s still warm here right now, don’t get me wrong, and even worse further south, I’m sure, but triple digit weather is its own kind of blech.
So, being able to walk outside the last few days and enjoy 90 degree weather (with a breeze, too!) instead of 104 degree weather (with no breeze) feels like a gift from heaven. The temperamental North Texas weather is taking it easy on us right now, which I think is an awesome way to celebrate the first day of official summer, don’t you?
What are your summer plans? Are you celebrating or doing anything special now that summer is officially here?
P.S. This is one of several flowering trees (crepe myrtle, maybe? I don’t know) I enjoy in my backyard. It’s the same tree that this palette was based on, and I love when these bloom because the flowers sprinkle across the grass like confetti. I edited the photo with another new action I’m working on; what do you think?
