Hazy, Hot and Humid
Hazy, hot and humid describes this past week quite well. Unbearable comes to mind too. It's been in the 90s even reaching 100 degrees. I know from comments to my garden posts that many of you suffer from this sort of weather all the time so I am unlikely to get any sympathy! I am not used to it though, and neither are my plants. They are looking a little stressed right now. We also now have watering restrictions in place that are likely to become more strict in the next few weeks.
The good news is that these garden phlox (above) bloom even when not watered, phew. See the little sunroom in the background? That's where I sew!
These Black Eyed Susans are blooming in my kitchen cutting garden now. They are such a simple flower but so cheery.
I have a few new flowers blooming this week, such as my balloon flower. But mainly, the daylily show continues.
I forget the name of this pretty ruffled yellow one.
This is Little Fantastic. It's a miniature daylily and I was taken by its name. It might have something to do with the fact that I am only 5 feet tall. I love to see the words "little" and "fantastic" combined.
This is Wine Delight. It's such a pretty color.
And finally, Prissy Petticoats. The names get me every time.
