I fear that most of these flowers will be burned by next week due to a major heat wave.
After a pleasant June for the most part the end of June and beginning of July are having very hot temperatures as high as 105 F (40.5 C).
Although Today's Flowers is on hiatus until later in August, I'll keep posting flowers if I have shots during the week.
I have quite a few flower shots from June I haven't posted so if the flowers get fried during the heat wave I may turn to flowers I photographed earlier in June.
At least plants with deep roots will be helped by all the rain we had during the spring and much of June.
It makes a big difference when we have a hot summer if the earlier months were wet.
We may even get some thunderstorms next week.
Wow, that's hot! A few days ago we were having 10 °C in the morning...
God bless you!
I'm always amazed at how well annuals do in the heat.
Wow, you are way hotter than us, I shouldn't complain. I just hate it when the flowers burn from the heat. Beautiful!
That, my dear, is TOO darn hot!!! I hope most of those beautiful flowers do OK..... we missed the usual spring flowers (it was an early spring --- and dry -- in Colorado and now that we're back in Oregon (where it's cool) most of them are gone already.
Lovely flowers. It's nowhere near that hot over here of course!
