HOT.....HOT......HOT......SUMMER GARDEN BEFORE THE HEAT HIT.......





I know most of the country is having a heat wave.......

HERE IN AZ........WE ALWAYS HAVE A HEAT WAVE......ALL SUMMER 


THOUGHT I WOULD SHOW YOU MY GARDEN BEFORE THE REAL HEAT SET IN AS I HAVE 
BEEN
SEEING SO MANY BEAUTIFUL GARDENS OUT THERE.


BY NOW MOST OF THESE FLOWERS ARE GONE.....SOME DEAD.......SOME JUST BARELY HANGING ON..........



BUT JUST LIKE THE REST OF YOU......THERE IS ALWAYS THE PROMISE OF NEXT YEAR WITH MORE BLOOMS AND MORE FLOWERS..........




ISN'T IT NICE TO KNOW THAT SOME THINGS TRULY ARE CONSISTENT.....

  1. Hi Jo

    Your flowers are beautiful! Yes, the heat is on. I see you have a Christmas cactus.. Last summer I had mine sitting on the patio table on the porch.. I almost lost it.. My front porch gets full sun. So... It is happy now cooling off in my enclosed patio...
    Stay cool my dear friend.
    Blessings,

  4. I'm so glad you captured them in photos, before the awful heat hit.

    We have heat, but things aren't withering yet, in my neck of the woods.

    But we are getting kind of sick of it. :-)

    But your heat is not with humidity, and it's supposed to be more livable. But how would I know? I've never been there. :-)

  5. And what a beautiful garden you have. Thank you, for sharing your flowers. The heat is taking its toll on some of the plants around here but some seem to be hanging in there so far. I am having to do a lot of watering to keep them looking as well as they do though.

    After all this heat we will be very glad to see fall around here. Hugs

  6. HI JO!!!!
    I understand HOT too, we are always hot from June til Oct!!!!But then it is the best!!!!
    I will be glad when hubby is retired and we can escape the heat for a few months each year!!!!!
    MY flowers are almost all dead, the ones in pots any way, I will be pulling them out for the summer here soon.
    It's just to hot for almost anything to grow here!!!!
    stay cool

  8. Jo, I feel bad that you have this heat all summer long. We are in the midst of a heat wave and I can't stand one more day of it. I have been a recluse all week long! It is supposed to cool off into the 70's or 80's this weekend...yay! I'm sorry your plants died, maybe they will come back with cooler temps.

    xoxo

  18. Your gardens are beautiful Jo. Isn't it sad how quickly they dry up though? Ours looks pitiful now.
