We had a record WET late winter and spring, and now a record spell of dry (drought!) with super low humidity. It's not uncommon to be 7% humidity! Today it will reach 90 degrees!

The burgundy tweed is the gift from Ireland from my supervisor. She is not a knitter but chose 30 grams of a gorgeous wool tweed that I mixed with two other cream wool yarns so I could knit the hat my length. It can be worn as a slouchy or as a cap with band folded up to have two layers over the ears.

Doc is making apple juice and also made applesauce from the "unjuiced" apples. We had to buy granny smith apples from Costco via Yakima since there are no apples in Colorado this year. Some orchards even have damaged trees from the freeze; our Honey Crisp is very healthy, just sans apples!
Yesterday I removed most of the sage and trimmed mint and edible flowers. The garden bits are ready for mulching.

There's not as much water, but still plenty in Lake Ketner.
Doc did the Fall weed and feed from Scotts and the lawn is gorgeous!
