Outdoor Wednesday

Go visit Susan for more outdoor Wednesday posts.




It's still growing after 15 days of 100+ temperatures.

My sister gave me the "Flowers and Song" rock, and I didn't even have to whine and beg for it!

15 days, oh I don't want to hear that. B.C. is having 100+ temps now and very high humidity for us. We are usually around 75-85 degrees. Hot nights too.
I was hoping to get off with a week max.
You must be taking good care of the garden because it is doing well.

Oh my your gardens look so beautiful. Your coleus really looks healthy. Love the flowers and song rock. That is just precious tucked in there so neatly. Job well done friend. You definitely have a green thumb. Thanks for sharing this lovely day. Country Hugs, Sherry

Hi Lynn

It's a challenge keeping a garden alive in thsoe 100+ temperatures unless you only grow cactus, My sister and sister-in-law are both in the Phoeniz, AZ area dealing with the same thing.

Stay cool!
