Here is where I've been the last few days. Temps have been pretty warm during the day (86) yesterday and will be warmer today, which is nothing compared to other areas. Still, it's too hot to do any heavy gardening. I'm just trying to keep things cool and hydrated (including myself). The mornings have been quite cool out in the backyard in the mornings. Around 60 on the patio. The lows during the night have been about 49, so that's quite a temperature range. Typical for Colorado. So, I get up early in case the screaming kids next door decide to spend all day trying to see how loud they can be in their wading pool, sit in the shade until I'm shivering, then into the sun to water until I'm too hot, and so on.... such is the life of a gardner. I like this time of the season when most of the heavy chores have been done, and it's mostly a matter of maintaining and deadheading, plus a little weeding. Back to my book.
