Anyone have any flowers blooming in all this heat? I've got a lot that bloom and then get a little crispy the next day or so around the edges and or fade fast. The bedding verbena and alyssum is doing well especially since I go out every am and give it a squirt of water. Same with the bedding dahlias, I have 3-1/2 out of 5 that are now about a foot tall now. 2 especially are growing well, a burgundy and a pink. My lavenders are having a hard time right now, can't figure out if it's getting too much water or not enough. Same with all the butterfly bushes. I have some odd repeat daylilies blooming here and there too.
How are your plants and shrubs all holding up through July?
It's 100 right now at 6:54pm and been in the 100's for days now but at least it's not been in the high 100's like last July. My elec bill is reflecting that too. News says it's supposed to drop down into the 90's and maybe the high 80's?? That would be very pleasant and a relief, especially if it could cool off at night and I could open up.
