What a beautiful place you live in. So many things to take photos of, and so much water to enjoy. The hay bales remind me of here, I never knew the temps in Ireland got so warm, I always thought it was cool there. I spent almost four years in England and I don't think we ever had 84 deg. F. days, if we did people would be passing out with heat stroke. The garden looks so nice and calming and relaxing.

Yes Larry i am very lucky with so many nice areas to visit and all close to home,..it makes my day.

Last year during mid summer it went up into the 90's F too warm for us and many people suffered sunstroke,..it was similar in England.

Yesterday saw another drop in temperature down to 12C-58F with rain for 24 hours,..so household chores were the order of the day.

So you were over this side of the pond,..well in England which is very close,..i mentioned that we don't have a set climate here due to the gulf stream,..its fairly mild winters and unpredictable summers though it has changed in the past few years to even warmer summers,..the hottest recorded in my garden was last summer with 98F.

I think the weather is constantly changing, still I know our summers will be hot and humid no matter what. Some years we have very hot summers and last summer seemed very mild to me, I don't think it got over 100 deg. F. at all, if so I don't recall it. Some years it hits the 100 deg. mark by May, one year we actually had snow in April. As long as the hurricanes and tornados stay away I am pretty happy, and of course love to avoid the floods and the droughts. My, can't we be picky about our weather.

Some people don't believe climate change but it is very noticeable if you are weather watching and gardening,..April tends to be good here but then in May you can expect anything,..May used to be good and everyone who fishes looks out for the Mayfly hatch as then trout will feed in the past three years the hatch was bad due to a cooler May.

You certainly get warm weather in Al when it hits the 100's.
