Hot, hotter, hottest. That about sums up the week in the garden.
You want more words? Dry, drier, driest.
We've had temperatures soaring to 100 degrees F. and no rain, which tells you just about all you need to know about my week in the garden.
In spite of the hot, dry conditions, some good things have happened in the garden this week. For example, the brugmansias have finally started blooming.
This yellow one has lived in the garden for years, but this year its blossoms look smaller than usual. In the picture, it appears bi-colored, but actually, in life, it is all yellow, although it is shades of lighter and darker yellow.
The clouds and thunder and occasional sprinkles teased us today but never delivered on their promise. The weatherman says maybe tomorrow. I'm not counting on it.
