Enduring Blooms

Despite the heat and lack of rain we do still have some blooms in our garden.

petunia - from last year's plants

more crape myrtles in my reading corner
they seem to thrive in this heat

We finally got some much needed rain and clouds Tuesday evening and most of Wednesday. What a welcome relief!

  1. I was happy to read that you did get some rain for the garden Sandy. It has been hot here lately as well, but my part of Idaho is very dry and considered high desert, so we are used to no rain here in the Summer. We depend on our reserviors for irrigation.
