As with so much of the country, we have had major power outages all week due to storms and insane temperatures. Out of the past 5 days, we have had our power go out 3 of them. Not fun in this heat! So many business are without power as well. Or some are simply closed due to the extreme heat. This is the first time in my life that I have driven up to a business and seen a sign on the door that stated they were closed due to the heat.
However, every restaurant that has power is making a killing! Standing room only!
You can feel tension running high in most people you encounter. The weather is draining everyone, myself included. So, I needed just to relax and find some beauty around me to sooth the stress.
A quick little trip through my flowers saw some beautiful bright Lily blossoms.
These Lily beauties grow wild all around our home.
Everywhere you look along side of the road are huge masses of these.
I wonder why the pretty yellow ones don’t grow wild around here?
You can see how they tower over everything else in the flower bed.
My perennial flower bed is one of my favorite things because we managed to get all these beautiful flowers for free. And they all just make me smile!
And smaller but, still pretty daylilies are blooming.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you all stay cool and safe during the crazy weather!
