June 27, 2014 – The Finest Weather on Earth

Have you ever experienced the finest weather on Earth?

Of course you have!  I hope you noticed it.  I really hope you appreciated it.

“The finest weather on Earth” is like “The center of the Universe.”  To the best of our knowledge, the Universe is ever expanding outward from any given point, which means everywhere is the center of the Universe.

I think the finest weather on Earth happens often in many different places.  If I am experiencing really fabulous weather – I mean spine tingling, soul singing great weather – who’s to say that is not the finest weather anywhere?  You may be having an identical experience somewhere far away.  Great.  Awesome.  Wonderful.  You too are experiencing the finest weather on Earth.

Well, you guessed it.  We had it yesterday.  Thursday evening, June 26, 2014 was one of those moments in central Indiana.DSC02715Hot – 84 degrees Fahrenheit (29 Celsius) – and sunny with a blue sky and passing clouds.DSC02712Nice and humid, bordering on ‘muggy.’  The kind of weather which causes folks from the arid western U.S.A. to declare “it’s like living in a sauna!”  Yep.  The weird thing is that they usually declare that with an incredulous tone, expecting me to apologize for the humidity.  I guess they don’t realize that if you live in this climate you learn to like it.  Or love it! ???????????????????????????????It’s not just me.  The flowers love it too.???????????????????????????????The poppies love it.???????????????????????????????The cosmos love it.???????????????????????????????The sunflowers love it.???????????????????????????????The whole darn garden loves it!???????????????????????????????Granted – if you like to kick back, relax and enjoy, you might want a nice umbrella.DSC02689That way you can enjoy it with a friend.???????????????????????????????Or several friends.???????????????????????????????But whatever you do, don’t hide in the air conditioning.  Get out and enjoy!  Let your soul sing, because it doesn’t get any better than this.DSC02795The Finest Weather on Earth.

  1. Gorgeous! I love you garden!!!! I live in Texas and we get nice weather maybe two month out of the year, the other 10 are either too hot to breathe, too many thunderstorms or too cold. It’s nuts! LOL
    I do try to enjoy it when it’s mid eighties and nice!

    1. Yep, we must enjoy the good weather when we have it. Trust me, it’s not always great weather around here, but it sure is now. Cheers. 🙂

  2. Lovely! Central Indiana? I am just little farther North where the home of The Irish is. 🙂

    1. Ah yes, I lnow the area. We have a Domer in our family. Have an excellent day – I’m guessing your weather is pretty good too. 🙂

  3. Thank you for letting us enjoy your beautiful garden in the finest weather! Always love your garden and flowers, Jim!

  4. i too had the finest weather on earth today!!
    is that your house? its so pretty

    1. Clare, you illustrate my point perfectly. Indiana and Australia, both living it up weather-wise this week. Thanks! All pictures are in my yard. The structure shown is our barn. The umbrella is on our patio. Have a great day. I hope your good weather holds.

  5. I love your whimsical posts! And your photos are beautiful.
    The weather in New England is FINALLY stupendous! At long last I’m thawing out!
    The weather gods are smiling upon us!

    1. Thanks Mary. Whimsical. I love that description. I will quote you next time someone asks me to described my blog. 🙂
      The weather gods are smiling. It has been a gorgeous summer here. A fair reward after the insane winter. Cheers.

    1. Thanks. It’s fun. I started the blog on the premise that there would always be something interesting to show. So far so good. Thanks for coming by and checking it out. Hope to see you around often.

    1. Oh yes, I’m enjoying it. I’ll be watching for your next post to get a sense of your winter weather. By the Australian blogs I follow, I’m thinking it might be mild by our North American standards. Enjoy!

    1. Well then, I sure hope you are treating them to some excellent New Hampshire weather. I’ve hung around New Hampshire a little and I recall some mighty nice days. 🙂

  6. The temperature in our backyard right now is 109 degrees. Arizona. The landscape here is much different than Indiana. It’s a desert land but the colors are beautiful. I won’t complain about the heat. I’m one that cannot tolerate cold. Your garden photos are spectacular, as usual. Blessings, Jim…

    1. 109 degrees. Yikes! Of course, its that dry Arizona 109 degrees. I’ve experienced it. Like an oven. We go in for the sauna effect here. But if we ever get that hot, Jim’s Garden will wilt and my garden photos will be anything but spectacular. Here’s to mid eighties and blue skies. Have a wonderful day. 🙂

  7. Beautiful, Jim. Except for your humidity! We had the finest days on Saturday and Sunday last. Mild, but fresh. Sun shining brightly. Blue skies. And the smell of flowers. It was perfect.

    1. Sounds nice. There is something about great weather that really does make my soul sing. Yours too, I bet. Blue skies and the smell of flowers. Mmmmmm. I hope you have many more such days this summer Cynthia. 🙂

  8. Yes, the weather is at its finest here from about April into November. I spend as much time as I can outdoors during that time but when the humidity gets too high I just get exhausted and it slows me down. Lots of breaks on the deck to just sit and enjoy.

    1. Yes, the humidity can wear a guy down. I’m actually much better with it now than I was when I was younger, having spent a lot of time “out west” in the dry air. Now I fancy myself a tough old Hoosier boy who knows not a dry shirt in the summer. But a good break is always welcome. And those mojitos you mentioned the other day. Mmmmmm. Beverage break, anyone? Cheers, Grower. 🙂

    1. Oh yes, what a fine way to put it. Singing their hearts out. La dee dah dee dah dee dah…. Quite the chorus on that fine evening! Thanks for the vision. 🙂

    1. Thank you. Seeing your peacocks and lillies, I see that you can clearly paint. Beautifully! You are welcome to use any picture I show as an inspiration for your painting, if you like. I would be honored. Let me know if you do, so I can get the thrill out of seeing them taken to another level. Have a wonderful day! 🙂
