My goodness - it has been so hot! I don't want to venture outdoors for anything. The lawn did have to be mowed and the bushes are loving the heat. I got some great photos of the magnolia tree and our crepe myrtles in the back.
According to Elena, it's never too hot to bake. (I disagree!) She loves to cook and found a yummy recipe for Black Forest Cake in one of my old cookbooks, so we did that. The resulting shot was taken AFTER we had devoured part of the cake. Not so great photography, but the cake was oh so scrumptious!
