With the official arrival of autumn less than two weeks away, Summer isn’t giving up her seat at Mother Nature’s table. Yesterday we set a new record of 93 and today’s forecast may be slightly hotter. Much like an unwelcome suitor, this one just won’t seem to go away quietly.
Following a visit with a dear friend at CU Medical Center yesterday, I happened to stumble across this hidden garden on the campus and came across these “bathing cuties” frolicking in a water feature among a bevy of plants. It was a serene spot and a the zen moment that whisked my mind miles away from the hectic pace of the city. Ahhhh…deep cleansing breath.
It’s mid-week and we’ll start to pick up steam cruising toward Friday. While you move in that direction, make it a great day.
Live, love, bark! 🐾

I love the little birds. We were watching some goldfinches frolic in our bird bath just this evening. Hope your hot spell breaks soon! We thought we were in for another one, but it hasn’t been bad at all, and the evenings cool off a lot!
You’re very kind. Thank you for the link.
Are you two trying to make us jealous? It was colder than a witch’s breath this morning. That secret garden is the best….watching bird TV there would be my idea of inner peace.
There were dozens of birds in that garden. And we’d be happy to trade weather. It was 95 today. 🔥🔥🔥
Super little chaps…at least they had found an oasis.
💜nose nudges 💜
Cute little birdies.
Sparrows are adorable but feisty little things. They always make me smile.
The temps have stayed reasonably cool the past few days, but I see much of the rest of the week and into next will be a bit warm… but still not 93. It should never be 93 in September!
Exactly. I barely survive 90”s in July let alone in September !
My comment disappeared! how rude! Wells, I was sayin’ to that that is a FABulous burdie fountain, and I would loves to sit and watch those little guys for hours! All the burdies in our hood use our fountains…I thinks it’s the only water source for blocks. I especially like the hummers that come in the morning for their baths ~ there is always a fight that breaks out abouts how long they spend in the shower!
Ha! Those little guys can be quite feisty. Sorry about the disappearance of your comment. WP and I don’t know why it’s been doing that lately. Grrrr
Oh, what a FABulous burdie bath! Our fountains are the go-to for all the burdies in our hood. and when our neighbor fills their bird feeder, it’s like every burdie in the valley comes over! BOL
Our fav are the hummers that come every morning to take five minute baths…there is always a fight that breaks out about how long they spend in the shower!
Whoops. Here it is! 🤪
What a lovely bird bath! We have a system heading our way so we are expecting some rain but hopefully, it won’t be too bad. Praying for our friends in Florence’s path.
We have them in our thoughts and prayers too.
Always fun to find a garden hidden away!
Lovely to find such a spot in the city.
Well, you could have sat in it and splashed to cool off.😈
Do you see how little those sparrows are? I would never fit with my…ahem…robust profile. 😊
93, wow, that is HOT! We’ve been deluged with rain, 3″ in 24 hours… and that’s just a ‘normal’ storm. The new normal that is.
Oooh, so jealous. The forecast calls for 95 tomorrow. I can’t even remember what rain looks or feels like. *Sigh*
As it was pouring down this morning, I thought of those stuck in drought and wished I could bundle it up and send it to them. What a difference that amount of rain would make to them!
The weather patterns all over the country are severely out of whack. We just try to waddle through and hope for the best. But like you said, I think this may be the new norm. 😬
Nice that those two cuties were able to find water. With the dry season we have had, it must be hard on the birds too.
We are having delightful weather this week, we sure hope the heat stays away.
Woos – Lightning, Misty, and Timber
We still have to add water to the Ranch birdbath nearly daily due to the heat. And water the potted plants sometimes twice a day. Hope the heat stays away in your neck of the woods.
Hot has been the temperature of each day. Enjoy each zen moment you can get.
On these hot days finding a zen spot is even more important. Stay cool. 😎
It has been hot here, but nowhere near our record, thank goodness–108
Ugh, triple digits are well beyond my ability to function. Stay cool.
It’s very cloudy and comfortable here right now, but it’s still early in the day.
Stay safe and know we’re thinking of you and sending ‘pawsitive’ thoughts.
I’ll be right up to cool off. We had triple digits yesterday.
I must be a dog since I hate baths.
The heat this year is crazy insane nearly everywhere. Seeing these little birds bathing made me smile.
I’ve planned an art quilt of bathing beauties for years, haven’t made it yet but it’s still in my mind.
What a clever idea! I’m sure it will be quite lovely when you get around to it.
I love to watch the birds do what birds do. So precious.
Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. Scritches to the pups. ♥
Those little guys are adorably cute and quite scrappy. I LOVE sparrows for those reasons.
that is a place to take a breath after all that daily madness of this week…
A wonderful respite in a crazy, mad world.
What a wonderful bird bath! 🙂
It was and such a charming surprise to see it being used.
