My backyard is so shady and lush that it stays pleasant basically all day, even when temps are in the 90s - but as you know, I enjoy the heat for the most part. It's just how I'm wired. I do especially love those cool mornings though - to me, temps in the 70s feel cool, especially in the green shade.


Isn't it great that we both love where we live? Everyone should be so lucky.
Yes. Just don't mow over that firepit. May hit lower 80s for us, but we lack humidity of course. Doesn't mean it isn't hot though

Looks like heat index of 95 tomorrow at 6pm in Tyler. I'd wait on starting that firepit. And please stay hydrated Kathryn
No worries, I always drink lots of water, even in the winter time, because it's healthy. And I only light the fire pit from about October through April generally though occasionally we have some cool evenings in May, though tomorrow won't be one. Just in time to stop though - we just ran out of firewood a couple of weeks ago!

I plan to do a lot of yardwork tomorrow, including in the evening, before I relax on the patio with my dogs. As I may have mentioned, my back yard is very shady and lush and I'm a bona fide "porch sitter." Maybe I should get some peas to snap, while I drink that big ol' glass of iced tea! Nyahh, I'll just visit with my neighbors instead probably - they love sitting around outside too in the evenings.

Just got our new hammock in and put it together - it's under a canopy of trees and it's my new favorite hangout area - it sort of replaces the fire pit in the summer time!

Life is grand!

We had 15 days this January in Denver with highs over 51 and 5 of those were over 60.

Looks like San Antonio skipped over spring.

Mid 60's here and raining I'm just fine with that
If San Antonio's heat is being caused by the subtropical ridge, then July and August may actually end up cooler.

Very possible as well.

Silly boy, I don't mow. The guys who mow for us are bringing over about 100 bags of mulch so I'm mostly going to be supervising. Don't worry, our backyard is spacious so we won't be working anywhere near the fire pit, though it's sweet that you're so concerned.

You won't be hitting anywhere close to the 80s tomorrow though - I think the high tomorrow in Denver is going to be around 51 - with rain. Have fun!

That's great! Our average max temperature in January was 55 degrees which is pretty typical. Winter weather in the 50s is my personal preference but of course everyone is different.

A 51 degree day sandwiched between weeks in the high 70s? I'll take it! May have to break out a jacket.

Like I said, have fun with all that and I'll have fun tomorrow too, in the dappled sunlight in my backyard, wearing shorts and flip flops with a big glass of iced tea in one hand and a trowel in the other. I may even break out my big floppy straw hat!

I am loving all the butterflies and bumble bees too. Like I've said, it's great that you live where you love the weather for the most part, and I live where I love the weather for the most part. Win win!

Stay dry my friend.

Your compassion overwhelms me. It rarely rains in Colorado, so this will be a treat.
