Morning On A 106 Degree Day

Cool nights and desert hot days bring ground fog to Edwin Warner Park this morning.

Perhaps these clouds mean the Gulf of Mexico is coming to our rescue and bringing rain!
Alas-by 10 am, they had burned away-

While all else wilts and suffers, this Johnson grass stands tall and fresh, for in pasture, field, and rock garden it will prevail, no matter how hot it gets.

This box turtle was on his way into the verge along the Little Harpeth River-until he was waylaid by a little dog named Popette.

These photos prove that early mornings are still open for walks and gardening, no matter what the afternoon brings. If this day indeed reaches 106 degrees it will be the hottest day I have ever lived through. A milestone. How I hope it is an anomaly and not some terrible harbinger of things to come.
