Foto Finish - Yellow

It was a good morning for sleeping in, so I did.  It seems like we've been going 90 miles an hour for the last few weekends.  The only thing on tap for this weekend is a trip to Tulsa to get school uniforms for the Drama Teen.  Only 2 and half weeks till school starts.  Hard to believe that the summer is drawing to a close.  Though you certainly can't tell that by the outside temperature.  It's hot, which is something you expect for late July early August in Oklahoma.  But boy it sure seems like it's been 100 plus degrees forever. 

To escape the hot and the dry for a bit, I took a journey back in the photo files looking for something yellow, as well as, cool and wet for today's Foto Finish.  I didn't have to go back far to find what I was looking for.

These rain soaked tulips were in front of the Crescent Hotel in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.  We were there over spring break back in March of this year.  It rained pretty much the whole week.  A week of rain sounds like a pretty good deal at the moment. We've had just enough rain the wet the ground and add a layer of humidity to the just plain hot. 

That's it for me this week.  Hop over to Cat Patches to see more sunny yellows.

That picture is beautiful, I was wondering what those beautiful flowers were, interesting that poor rain soaked tulips still look beautiful.

Gorgeous photo. It's been so dry here all summer but we did get a good storm earlier this week that helped somewhat. But it is still very warm.

Whoa! The pause that refreshes, huh? I recall that when we lived in Phoenix, we would get evening rain storms in August. Everyone was so glad for the moisture that we ran out into it. You're right, though. It just made the next day more uncomfortable than ever.

That is a lovely shot!

Sounds like we're both ready for a change of season! I'm over winter and you're done with summer. Time to swap!
