Welcome to SUMMER everyone! Hurray! Today is the Summer Soltice...longest day, shortest night of the year. Here in Vermont, temps will average 72 degrees with nighttime temps in the chilly low 50's. Just beautiful. My first daylily opened this morning, 'Emerald Dream', Very appropriate.

Happy summer up there!

But welcome to winter everyone here - the sun started coming back to us two hours ago.

And ours will start going away. Still happy that the days get shorter as we go through July and August. With our heat and lack of rain, if they kept getting longer, we'd be looking like the Mojave. Glare

Amen Debra!

Thanks for the new thread Juli. It is a pretty sky even if it was last year.

Sorry about that, Glen. I am sorry you are going in to winter - but your winter's can't be all bad, if you have daylilies blooming every day. I hope I never have to go through another winter like we had this past year here…. (shivers) it was awful.

Perfect day today. It's only about 72 but my the sun is warm. Was out weeding for about 45 minutes and had to come in for a break and thirst break. Sweat was running down into my eyes. I need to either wear a hat or get a sweat band to wear.

Well now I know why I was so hot. It isn't 72 but almost 80. Didn't think it was supposed to get quite that warm today. I will wait till I get some afternoon shade to continue my weeding.

We are starting summer with a nice pleasant 101 so far... Hilarious! A heat wave is predicted for this week. Angry Seems like it has been summer for ever and like Debra I am glad the days will start getting shorter now. Thumbs up

I agree That is terrible! I've been trying to send cool air, but it's trapped somewhere, like here maybe. Whistling

Today remained perfect. Wish it would stay like this until November.

Until we can dislodge Natalie's hoarded stash of cool air ( Rolling on the floor laughing !!!) I'm at least glad that the daylilies have pretty much bounced back from the first 106-degree heat wave here. I'm getting pots ready to pull up any daylilies that start to falter as the 3-month desert season begins, since all of the plants potted in shade make it through okay. And DH is listening each time I describe shading options for our blast furnace garden, so I'm hoping the holiday season this year will include some shade cloth and poles! Hilarious!

I'll supposedly be letting go on Monday. It's supposed to get up to 90! Nights are still very cool though, so I'm not going to complain.

Can't wait to see what you come up with for using the shade cloth, Tina. I do believe that some is in my future too, if I can figure out how to keep it from blowing away. I'm also afraid of it ripping in the wind. If this year is like last year, I'm in for some triple digit temps myself.

I hear you about the wind-in-the-shadecloth issues. But, here's just one photo of a set up where its easy to pull back the cloth, like a shower curtain (kind of) for any stormy weather.This would be easy to do with shade cloth and retractable clothes lines run between poles or, in my case, between shed and fence on either side of the garden. I'm quickly searching out other configurations that might thwart the wind-problem, so that my wish-list will be ready by early winter. nodding
