Outdoor Wednesday

Return to A Southern  Daydreamer and  more  Outdoor Wednesday!  
I was walking  through the back yard this evening....surveying the   effects of the  heat wave  we have been experiencing...  
This  was taken  the week before the temps  reached in to the triple digits .

the    day lilies were  blooming out.
 the  trailing petunias were lush...
 even this  petunia that  had  been  rather  distressed with    summer  sun  was   coming back    with  tender  care...
 the basil was    growing so well and  the leaves were  tender and  unblemished!
 My patio  tomato was   doing well if it didnt have  scads of  blooms it was  hearty...
  well, things didnt look as nice this evening... mainly the grass was  very  much drier and    dried to a wheaten hue...  but for the most part the plantings  werent too bad of shape.. so Im hopeful that  with continued watering  they will spring back  with this nice 80 degree  weather  we're having!
 Next week  we'll  do  more current photos for comparison!

  1. Hi Schotzy,

    I hope you garden survives this hot spell. You might have to cut things back a bit but then hopefully they will rebound.
