Partly Cloudy, Chance of Showers


We’ve been days and days without rain.  It’s been so hot that the heat index was so far up there we didn’t want to talk about it.  Watering the plants didn’t do much good.  Whatever you gave them was burned up almost as soon as it hit the ground.   The flowers have suffered, leaves are turning brown.   The garden looks like something the Addams Family would grow.  

Ahhhh, but today it rained.   And I went outside to get some photos of the plants as they relaxed a bit and ceased struggling to breathe. 

poor thirsty hostas

RELIEF!

 
Yep, it’s another  I Heart Macro Sunday!

  1. My gardens were looking like this too….finally 2″ of rain over the weekend but, the hosta’s are burned as well as my ferns. Looks like it’s time for some cutting back so they can start again!

    • I know, Kim. I”ve got to get out there tomorrow. What little rain we got did not do much good. I’ve got the day off and going to spend some of it outside. We are headed for another scorching weekend. My poor cherry tree is shedding leaves like its fall!
