We’ve had record-setting temperatures here in Minnesota this week, but what’s really melting my heart are all the yummy summer colors in my midst. I’ve got heat stroke from all the hot and heavy colors busting out all over, from street corners to flower beds. 
We defied the odds yesterday with the mercury rising to 103 degrees – the first time here in over 20 years. Nothing a little air conditioning, a cup of ice cream and a camera can’t handle. Hope you enjoy soaking up every shade of summer – here and in your own backyard.
