The Hottest Summer I Know

This has truly been the hottest summer I’ve experienced.  Outside, the yard plants are dying and the grass has patches of yellow everywhere.  The porch plant from Lowe’s won’t last a day without watering it, the day lilies won’t bloom all the way, and the daisies (which always seemed to withstand the weather) withered.

July 4th is tomorrow and the family usually enjoys going somewhere nearby to watch firework displays, but this year, all firework displays have been prohibited in the county I live in.  We’ll find something fun to do to celebrate this day but it’s a bit sad to realize how hot and dry this part of the country has become.
