the caper flowers closing for the night on the bushes that grow wild out of the steps of the abandoned house across the road  -
the bees were rushing in to get one last drink.

45.5 degrees today


some random crumbs to a favourite blog where i often stop
to catch my cyberspace breath  .      .        .         .              .               .                  .

(click on them - they'll take you there)

15 degrees today, what a difference.
Loving your trail of breadcrumbs, oh yes, I picked up each and every one of them.

The caper flower, such a miracle. Suppose it wouldn't enjoy our temperatures.

I don't recall having seen those caper flowers before . like delicate ballerinas . so pretty!

and I really enjoyed collecting all the crumbs you left scattered ... so inspirational!

temperatures have risen abruptly in the past couple of days and yesterday and today were mere "balmy" days of 41ºC where I live. compared to the +45ºC you have ... I would die with those extra 4!

... in the late afternoon the wind started to blow bringing slight respite ... tomorrow hopefully a handful of less degrees

stay cool! *
