Enduring The Heat

Around the garden the flowers are feeling the stress of this late Spring heat....
In the mid ninety degrees, we have to water everyday.
No more blooms on the Clematis, just the remaining canes, which promise new growth next season.

Your garden still looks good, in spite of the heat. We're battling the heat up here as well. Hopefully we'll get some relief soon.

We haven't even seen 70 degrees yet, here in Bellingham, and you are sweltering! I guess I will take the rain and cool weather, since I don't do well in the heat. Thanks for the beautiful pictures!!!

Hello Jo! You're a bit hotter than us over here in Kansas although with the humidity it feels like we're in a sauna. I hate humidity! Your garden looks WONDERFUL...love your rabbits and your potting shed too. Everything looks so lush and colourful even though it's so hot. Thanks for stopping by today...it was so nice to 'see' you. I'm enjoying your blog...your photo's are just gorgeous. I especially love the photo's of England. I imagine you miss home...I've never lived there and only went over after finding my sister in 91 but those two visits have caused me to fall in love with the country. I've always loved England as my Mum and her parents and my Dad's Mum were all from there but to go there and be a part of it for 3 weeks...now that was WONDERFUL! Thank you for sharing your homeland with us and bringing back happy memories for me too. Have a wonderful Thursday....Maura :)

I am in love with your adorable potting shed! I have one too, but yours is cuter. I'll be happy to send you some cooler temps. I had to turn on the furnace again today and tonight the low is supposed to be 43 degrees. I might have to wear my flannel pajamas again. I hope that it cools off a bit for you. I so enjoyed your garden tour!!

Love,
Susan and Bentley

Oh your plants look great, but the watering daily does get old doesn't it?!

the heat certainly has not hurt any of your beautiful plants OR that wonderful shed. the shed is a perfect decoration for a perfect garden.

Beautiful photos!

Heat and humidity here, too. The rains that have fallen all around us didn't give us more than a woefully few drops with no rain in the 10 day forecast either. We'll be watering and watering. The veggies and flowers are worth it!

Hugs!

Your garden is doing well despite the heat. Lovely flowers.

Today we had a gorgeous sunny summer day about 70F. Not enough of these though.

Keep up the watering, it's well worth it.

Your garden and all of the beautiful flowers still look GREAT --regardless of the heat and humidity...

Glad you got rain today though.
Hugs,
Betsy

I don't mind the heat too much (currently mid to high 90's). It's the humidity (sometimes stinky) that just wears us out.
If you get into Nashville fairly soon you have to visit the Frist. Chihuly glass and V&A costumes. Fabulous.
