Supertunia by eudora


Not much super about this petunia. Way too leggy but it continues to put out small blooms. Blame the gardener who forgot to fertilize it and the weather for being way too hot for June. It was 100 degrees actual temperature today.

I read an article recently by an American writer who said that Americans are too whiny about excessive heat and that Australians cope with it much better by hydrating more conscientiously, eating lighter and avoiding caffeine. Is this true?

The photo was shot with a vintage manual Pentax 50 mm F2 lens on a Pentax K70. I love these old lenses!
Beautiful photo! I imagine we are too whiny, but we have always complained about the weather no matter what it is

@grammyn True. I know I always complain about it! My husband used to say I have a narrow comfort zone.

Americans are whiny about everything- not just the weather! LOL We can be a very self-centered culture. But I think human nature is the same in every place. Australians may not whine about the weather, but I'm sure they've got something they consistently whine about. All that being said- I like the shot and the softness created by the vintage lens. Beautiful!

Old lenses can be such fun to use. I have a couple of old Canon FD lenses from the seventies that I use sometimes, either on an old Canon AE1 if I feel like shooting film or with an with an adapter on a Canon 70D

lovely blooms and interesting comments about the heat and American and Australians (probably true!)

Here is a poem I used to read with my second graders:
As a rule
Man is a fool
When it’s hot
He wants it cool
When it’s cool
He wants it hot
Always wanting
What it’s not.
