Sunny, windy and hot.
Watered and hunted squash bugs.
Gave the retired teacher who lives in the rental next door a tour of the garden. We've talked over the fence, but she had never seen the garden up close. She was amazed that there is no lawn in the back garden.

Sunny, windier and hotter.
Watered and hunted squash bugs. I was more generous with the water this evening. Going from nice mild temperatures to a hair dryer these past two days has been rough on the plants. All their new leaves look horrible. My clematis had lovely little buds that I don't think will open now. We were well over 100 degrees Fahrenheit yesterday and today with winds up to 25 mph and gusts 40 mph. When I went to work this morning at 5:30 am, it was still 80 degrees. We should go back down to the 90s for our high tomorrow. What a relief.
As I was watering the lettuce, this fellow jumped out of the cold frame box. Then, I jumped. Then, I grabbed my camera. He was the highlight of today's gardening experience.
