It’s HOT here people.
Like really, really, really, REALLY HOT!!!
But, that is summer in South Texas, right!!??!!!
Thank goodness we have had a little more rain than usual this summer and the backyard is loving it! I thought I’d give you a little look at what we’ve been doing every weekend in the HOT sun!
Did I mention it is really HOT here!!!
I’m going to keep comments very brief and let the pictures tell the story!!
My “pot tower”! Notice the upside down wine bottle? Great way to water (it works like those water globes we’ve all seen)!
The “fountain turned planter” is flourishing well this year!
I was a bit worried about the floral mixture I placed in this new planter I picked up at a thrift shop, but they’re also doing great!
Our patio hasn’t changed much….just added some palms.
When the evenings cool slightly (and I mean slightly) we play a game or two of our DIY adult size Jenga game!
Remember our DIY Pallet Swing?
Hubby added an attached stool this weekend!!! So much easier to get up on it and rest our feet! More on that to come!!
A couple of my favorite “newbies”! My patio rose is doing well and still surviving the HOT Texas sun!
I have no idea the name of this plant but I love it! The color is so dramatic and beautiful amongst all the green!
This is a fun little project I threw together! We took off our back screen doors because our doggies loved tearing up the screens! So, I just placed one on the patio wall and added a wall planter hanging from a hook and chain! Something a “little kooky“, but fun!
So that’s the backyard for now!
I hope you’re all finding ways to keep cool!!!
We tend to sit in here……
Most would call this a “HOT” tub, but the temperature’s been turned off since April! It’s our mini “COOL POOL“!!!
Did I mention it’s HOT here!!!!
Until next time……
