you know it's hot when...

1. You can't get a shovel to make a dent in your baked clay yard even when you jump on it repeatedly.

2. When the birds follow you from bed to bed as you water so they can
burrow down in the wet mulch and stay cool. And they spend more time
there than in the trees.

3. When you can walk into an 80 degree house and it feels like a walk-in refrigerator.

4.  When you drink bath temperature water from the garden hose and it tastes like the coldest spring water in the world.

5.  When even the most vicious mosquitoes won't come out of their hiding spots to bite you.

Ah, gardening in Texas folks.  It's not just an obsession, it's an adventure in heat tolerance.
Jesse calls it gardening in hell, I call it home.
Have a good evening y'all!
