Cool Morning Before a Hot Day

It is supposed to get up to 98 degrees today. I think all the critters both wild and domestic have that figured out! We had the following visitors drop by about 7:30am.

By 9:30am the cats had decided it was too warm to patrol the property.

Hot colored zinnias, sweet potato vines, and nasturtiums on a hot day!

* Update - temperature got to 101 today - a record. As we sat on the back patio in the warm gloaming around 9:00pm we were joined by ten deer! The doe and the small fawn pictured above, the buck also pictured above, a doe with twin fawns, another doe with twins, and a single doe. Everyone had drinks from the bird bath and munched on sunflower seeds from the bird feeders. Not much by way of pushing and shoving - ,ust have been a hot tired day for everyone!
