Summer Begins?

As I sit here in my hoodie and long pants, the question on this first day of summer remains, “Summer begins?” For days, we’ve been in a weather cycle of cool temps, scattered drizzles, and no sun until mid-afternoon. Does that sound like summer?

Granted our daisies are blooming. Today Bob found buds on some of our hostas. The geraniums are loaded with blossoms. And believe it or not, our Christmas cactus now residing on our back deck is setting buds. The plants obviously believe summer is here.

I’m sorry, but it doesn’t feel like summer yet. Not long ago we had temps in the upper 90s. We turned our furnace off. The mornings have been crisp and cool, so I’ve kickstarted the furnace to take the edge off.

Summer comes every year. I know that in my mind and heart, but I want to see it, feel it, be outside in it. And in August or September, I’ll likely be begging for a cool down.

You can’t please some folks, can you?

  1. Similar situation here, Sherrey. Trying to be patient as we wait for the HEAT.

    1. I read your post today and envied the sun you were expecting, Linda. Some day sit seems we’re on a kindred wave length. I was lazy today. Had this ready to go last night and forgot all about it. Recovery is making me lackadaisical.

  2. I’ll be happy to donate 10 or 15° of Austin heat.

  3. Florida heat, the same! The A/C runs most of the day now!
