Beating the Heat

It was 110 here in the Sacramento Valley on Monday. Fellow gardener, Maria braved the heat the next day to do an evening check and give a little first-aid to anything that had not weathered the weather! She’s also turning into quite the camera bug. She captured this funny-faced Robin who found his own way to keep cool!

  1. Great pictures, Maria. Sweet bird just trying to stay cool. The picture taking thing must be contagious out there. Way to go girl!!

  2. That Robin was thinking hard. “Really – 110? Wow – someone left a nice pool of water – thank you. With a shower, I’m feeling much better and will go on my way. But, I need to mark this as a favorite on my GPS. These are caring folks. :-)”

  3. The second to last photo is brilliant. He looks so affronted that anyone would photograph him in the moment of taking a bath. Honestly, no privacy!
