Too Hot for the Flowers

Today it was very, very hot. 89 degrees, in fact. My poor flowers were a bit withered tonight when I returned home. A splash of cool water from the hose and they began to perk right up. I do enjoy watering, dead-heading, and light weed pulling. However, I must admit that I'm not crazy about bugs so I don't want to get my hands into the soil too much. It is one of my joys to be able to see colorful flowers outside my window. Just makes me happy.

Hi Sharon,

Lovely to have some coloured flowers around the house and garden and yours are very pretty.

Enjoy your week.

Hi Sharon:
It is hot here in the Bay area : )
Yes, I am here : ) and could not believe the heat wave up here.
Your flowers make for a happy view outside your window!!!
Will e-mail you later.
When I lived in San Francisco I can only remember one day that was 88 degrees. All week is high.
Take care

Ladies,
It's darn hot - 94 degrees today! The heat is scheduled to last for a week or more. I'll keep watering my little flower plants and hopefully they'll keep perky (and me too :-) ).

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer!
Hugs,
Sharon
