The heat is really playing nasty with the gardens this year!
The inpatients just kinda of set there looking all droopy....can't say that I blame them I'm feeling all droopy too and I get to go inside to the air conditioner.
The Lantana doesn't seem to mind at all :)
....but even the sunflowers don't seem to last as long.
The yarrow just keeps getting bigger and bigger so I gues it loves the heat.
But the dahlias are no where their usual size or vibrant colors.
The verbena is a little thin :)
.....but nothing seems to phase the Shasta's! They just keep blooming and blooming :)!!!
This is my Joe Pie's 3rd year in the flower garden and it is beautiful so I guess it must be a heat tolerant plant as well
The saliva's look good in the morning but are wilted like crazy by afternoon.
The black eyed Susan's are just starting to bloom and I know they don't mind the heat so we'll have color there for a while :)
The Purple Liatris are bloomomg but alot of them did not come back this year. Don't know why...I've never had trouble with them before. But we've never had a winter like last winter either ...so maybe that was it.
I'm excited to see the seed pods on the butterfly weed...means I'll be starting lots more of them next spring :)
The heat is suppose to last thru the weekend here and hopefully give us a break the first part of next week!
I need to weed the front flower bed desperately but I don't see that happening anytime soon :(
