Bardstown Kentucky - the last four days have been gorgeous. low 80's F in the daytime, down to 55 F last night. This is unusual for July. Last Tuesday was awful. Even though it only got up to 94 or so, the humidity was about the same, would catch your breath and fog your glasses just to walk outside. I can come upstairs and visit Mudcat when it cools off, but I'll have to stay downstairs if it gets hot again.
My perennial garden is in full bloom. Garden phlox (from my grandmother's garden) is blooming, along with the Black-Eyed Susans. Coreopsis are still blooming too. My gardenia bush in a pot on the patio had its first bloom this week!
