I Felt It! I Definitely Felt A Cool Breeze!

Whether true or not, I am taking full credit for bringing the cooler weather to Georgia! 
We were at my parents' house in New Hampshire last weekend, where it was in the 60's and raining for most of our stay.  After weeks of 90-plus temps in Georgia, though, it was DELIGHTFUL!  Frank was freezing for most of our visit, but I enjoyed every minute.....we didn't use the air conditioning in the car or the house!

When we got back home, it was definitely still summer in Atlanta, but the humidity seems to have disappeared and it's actually tolerable being outside.  I'm going to spend tomorrow going through the Stepchild Garden, removing and cutting back all of those things that are at that "crispy, crispy, crispy" point.  I think I'm going with a Minimalist theme for the rest of the summer........

  2. I'm glad that things cooled down in Georgia, Tim! My best friend's oldest son just graduated from basic training at Fort Benning, and when they arrived on Wednesday she said it was stinkin' hot. Graduation was actually this morning, so it must have been much better - thanks for making that possible!

  3. Minimalism can be a good thing. I'm giving it a try too. The things that survived, can stay. I'll make more of them through cuttings or seed or division. The things that didn't make the grade are gone.

    And that was a cool breeze you felt. It was in the 60s at night here a week ago. It was absolutely divine.

  4. I've been sleeping with the windows open and no A/C for a few days now, but we'll get another scorcher before hits in earnest.
