That is what it is like here, the heat finally made it in conjunction with the thunderstorms, and we are steaming. The grass is growing and I might make it out there early tomorrow to mow ( if it doesn’t rain again) but there is no way I am going to melt away in this heat. What survives -survives. Trying to be one of the surviviors here….
Not that I am complaining- my part of Ohio went relatively unscathed, while not too far north there is flooding and all sorts of misery.
I’ve seen more insects which is not surprising, considering the warm and moist conditions. I added some of the new bloomers I’ve observed to the sidebar in the past week. As I’ve walked around the garden I notice there are some perennials that made it through the last years neglect. Plumbago has cheerily been blooming its bright blue little flowers for awhile now. They are a very intense greenish blue. The autumn clematis is just starting to break into bloom, and rudbeckias are everywhere- my garden, others gardens, in the city…. everywhere. I like them best with neutrals or other warm colors. I feel it is too early for the intense violet/orange gold combinations that belong to fall. Sedum is blooming and that tends to calm down the colorations.
I don’t feel like writing anymore- I finished the herb plant list that goes with the herb garden page. That represents way too much computer time. And this heat makes me feel tired. whine whine whine.
Oh that reminds me of a funny thing going around the internet- seen it?
