Blooming on Planet Sun

It’s hotter than Dutch love outside. The humid heat is channeling Planet Sun, where eggs disintegrate on the pavement and sweat comes out of a body’s pores within seconds – just before melting begins.

A scorcher is predicted for Tuesday, with a heat index around 100 degrees. I feel sorry for the plants on my patio, as the afternoon sun heats the wooden planks to a few degrees above hell.  The blooms seem to be flourishing, though, with constant water and a few kind words. My hope is that the petunias, vinca, lobelia and pansies survive the heat as they survived the torrential rains in June, so I can continue to enjoy their color and beauty until the crisp air of fall arrives in September.

    Geraniums and petunias seem to thrive in heat, but it’s amazing that the lobelias and pansies are doing so well. Great captures, Mary. I like the butterfly trellis!

      I have had others say that it’s strange my pansies are still thriving. They must be taking their vitamins!
