Too Darn Hot
The fourth day of over 100 degrees. And without our normal Delta Breeze cooling at night. They promise that it will cool down next week. I caught several of my potted plants looking dead and shriveled by the time I got around to watering yesterday. Happily, they all pulled back to some semblance of life. I fertilized, sprayed and thought about pruning but I.m done for the day. My roses are already past their prime. Next week I will be pruning off dead flowers to prepare for the next wave.
First up today is 'Midnight Blue'. Earlier in the week when it was cooler the flowers were very deep purple. No more.
Below is 'Mermaid' starting around the top of my courtyard.
