It has been raining and cold all week. Cold enough that I had to turn the furnace on. Horrid summer weather.
The boys have been dealing with it well so far. They get little house play time in summer because we are always outside. So they have been making forts, hotwheels race tracks and crafting.
That said, they are missing their yard. They keep trying to play out there, but it is just too cold and wet to dig in the sand box and the playhouse windows still need Plexiglas to make it hospitable for cooler days. My husband has been building it. Very proud of him! The shingles are going on this weekend if the rain stops.
My poor garden is also missing the heat. Not sure what will happen if we don't get some soon. We have had some lovely radishes so far. I even planted a second crop. Just not sure how they are fairing in this.
My tomatoes last week were really starting.
Strawberries still producing
And finally my clematis has bloomed. So happy, it has hit about 10-11 feet this year.
One thing we have continued with the crappy weather is our bird watching. Our backyard seems to have so many birds this year.
Of course the ever abundant sparrows.
And our latest find yesterday...Cedar Waxwings!
The forecast is calling for sunshine on Saturday. It won't be hot, but hopefully it will be dry. Crossing my fingers.
