96F & 'Strip Tease' family doing O. K.

irawon(5a Ottawa)July 14, 2012

I took these pics of Strip Tease and Hanky Panky on July 12 and today they are still doing a lot better than some of my other cultivars. Gypsy Rose is fine. 'Risky Business' is the only one that is less perky. Must be because he gets more sun. These temps are supposed to stay this high all week here in Ottawa, Canada. I feel for those of you further down south.

Here's 'Gypsy Rose'. Hope we get some rain soon.

Love your Strip Tease family--especially Gypsy Rose.

We've sunk back to the 90s this week--but I see from the forecast that we will be back up to 99 by the end of the week.

I'm really tired of this high 90s to over 100+ weather--which started a month too soon besides.

Thanks, Kate. I got 'Gypsy Rose' first and then the others as an afterthought. I'm tired of the heat too. You must be doubly so in zone 6.
