The sun is shining, not too hot yet. I checked the plants when Charlie and I were outside earlier, but the surface of the plants are still somewhat wet from yesterday’s watering.
I really like to water early in the morning and/or in the evening. But when it’s this hot, I have to alter my watering schedule to keep the plants from getting stressed.

It was created by Tibetan monks. You can read more about it here. The exercises are designed to stimulate muscles and optic nerves.
