One of my very best friends LOVED Red Zinger iced tea! Maybe thinking of you in a parka will help get me through the terrible heatwave we're experiencing today, Kimmie. At 11:30 a.m. it was already 99 degrees outside! Hugs, Terri xoxo

Love your photos. I have enjoyed visiting all the Tea for Tuesdays blogs that I think I will join you. I will post something today on my blog about tea, and also about the Tea Poetry Contest of 2010 .

Thank you Kimmie for posing such beautiful altered photos!!! Love the colors and its vibrance.....I feel the energy and I'm sure the "sun tea" was good!! It's my first time learning about sun teas...Thank You!!

Yvonne said...

My tea post is up now. I had to be sure I had your link in there as well. Thanks Kimmie. I am such a big tea drinker, hot and cold, that I know I will enjoy participating in Tea on Tuesdays.

It really IS sun tea today. And I can't believe your lovely weather. It's been a heat wave here. I'm SO ready for snow photos again! Loved your vignettes. The first photo looks like a watercolor painting. I had to look twice at it.

Glad to see you made it back all safe and "cool." Happy Tea Tuesday, dear friend.

Love your photographs, the post work is very interesting.

Two days ago the weather here was in the upper 90's and today everything is overcast and I need a jacket. I hope you get some cooling by a few degrees to be more comfortable.

Wishing you all the best,

How DID you do those photos?? Love them!! Red zinger has always been a favorite! Right now it is 100 degrees- I am hoping the temps drop 20 degrees in the next 2 hours(not likely)- we are going to a bar-b-q!!!

I wanted to pass along another link you might wish to add regarding your 'Oil Spill Animals' series.

Though this organization is located on the Pacific Coast, they are helping when ever there is a problem of any kind.

the link: http://www.marinemammalcenter.org/

They are located north of San Francisco just passed the Golden Gate Bridge. I plan on visiting them with my older children, since they are located less than an hour from where we live.

I was going to send this to your email address, but I could not locate it. Sorry for having to do it this way.

Warmest regards, Egmont

I drink about one gallon of sun tea every day during the summer...is this too much??? heck no because with the heat it keeps me hydrated in a hot hot summer! Lovely post and your photos are so inviting! Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

Summer never begins in Washington until after July 4th! I didn't wear a parka on the 4th, but I was definitely bundled up!

Great images!
