My beautiful peach (mystery) dahlia making friends with my favorite rose, Double Delight.
Another mystery dahlia.
I began a new project and I'm enjoying it so much--a welcome change from months of not having the creative energy to work on much of anything. You can never go wrong with Essex linen and Oakshott shot cottons.
Oh, Fresno. Your temperatures never make me happy in August. It makes me irritable when my phone gives a forecast like this.
Here's a question: You see those Sunday and Monday temperatures--110 and 109 degrees? Why didn't it say HOT, even though Tuesday 110, Wednesday 109 and Thursday at 108 were HOT. Hmmm.
Oh wait. It WAS hot on Sunday, hotter than the paper predicted. Ugh.
All this excessive heat and lightning strikes have caused so many fires in northern California. Last night about 6:30 p.m., our air was brown and the sun was a bright red dot. I've never seen anything like it.

We have set up a little schoolwork area in the guest room.
Obligatory weekly non-COVID memes.
I'm not sure Mark always appreciates my sarcasm...
