Today's Flowers: Lunch Hour Walks

The last week in July was remarkable for having pleasant temperatures.


Ordinarily, July is very hot in the NC piedmont where I live. Most of the month was hot and humid.


This week was an exception with spring like temperatures and I took advantage of that by walking during lunch.


These shots were taken on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.


Until this week, I've been eating while I worked inside which I do when it's very hot outside.


It was nice to be able to enjoy some fresh air for a change.


Although it was hot until this week, frequent rain has kept most of the flowers looking fresh.


I hope August will be pleasant. In recent years July has been the hottest month and August has been much cooler.

Oh my, looking at that first shot dare I hope my Lazy Susan's will multiply and look as lovely :) Great series of photos Carver, I love the front porch with those pretty flowers out front especially. It rained here last night, good for the gardens. Looks like we are going to have showers and thunderstorms all weekend. Thanks for sharing again with Today's Flowers :)

Blanket flowers make me think of Florida -- I do love them. When I was still working (back in the dark ages) it was great to have a dry day in the spring so that I could walk at noon. Sure makes the day go better. I guess if I'd lived in Florida back then, it would be the heat. (When we're there in the spring, I have to walk early in the day --- but it's no problem when you are old and retired).

Can't imagine living in Alaska in the winter -- how do they survive without walks! Still having fun here this season tho -- and someday will have time, energy, and Internet at the same time and will be able to catch up.

Lovely! We had the hottest July in 50 years or so and I didn't get much done. I hope we'll get more normal weather soon.

What a lovely Southern porch and yard, it makes me think of my grandparents' house in South Carolina, where I used to read books in the summertime. I like the pillars and little curliques. The Gaillardia are pretty too, with the different colors of disk flowers.
