Well, today was another 100 degree day. It's much too hot to be outside but I did manage to take a few pictures to share. This Calibrochia is holding up o.k. I over-wintered it in my greenhouse and now it grows in a pot on my deck.
The Feverfew (Chrysanthemum parthenium) is surviving the heat. I started it from seed several years ago and now it faithfully reseeds itself. Prolifically. Its leaves are very aromatic.
The Black-eyed Susans (Rudbeckia) are blooming. I think their buds are very interesting. These were pass-along plants from a friend in South Carolina.
Normally I try to rely on rain water to keep my bog garden going, but because it is so hot and dry, I did have to give it a good soaking. I love the veins on Sarracenia leucophylla 'Tarnock'.
The Yellow Shrimp Plant (Pachystachys lutea) also grows in a pot on the deck. I keep hoping to see a hummingbird come to it. Well, if it is hot in your part of the world, stay cool. And if your temperatures are comfortable, enjoy!
Have a beautiful day!
