It’s not as hot as it was a few weeks ago, but it’s still warm, and I’m always on the lookout for ways to stay cool. My plants were thirsty so I relaxed in the backyard and did a bit of watering.
Do you see the little bee house on the right? I had mason bees in my garden this spring. They don’t sting and they don’t make honey, but they are great pollinators. After a few weeks, the females fill the house with next year’s bees (in cocoons) and then they die. I’ll take this batch of future bees into the garage for the winter and bring them out to hatch in the spring.

My cat, Alice, joined me in the garden. She’s blind, so she can’t escape the yard like most cats, but she really enjoys exploring. She’s even started running! If I say “run run run” she knows the coast is clear and she takes off. When I say “careful!” she knows to slow down. She’s smashed into the house, pots, and chairs before so the warning word really helps her. She’s a smartie!
After making sure all the plants were watered, I poured myself a glass of rosé–that’s seems like the best way to cool off!
