My tomato is still producing, despite the heat-damaged foliage.
My leafy begonia did not survive the heat. I hope they will produce new leaves from the bulb. I keep watering them.
The path the painters made through my bed to get at the side of the house. It will take some time for this to recover.
My rose bush suffers from heat-melted blossoms and painter sanding dust. I will have to hose off each plant in the garden to give the leaves a chance to breathe again.
One echinacea dried to a crisp by the heat, while its neighbor still blooms. Nature is mysterious. We never know which plant the strong sun will toast and which it will leave to flower.
There is some good news. Despite the heat some plants have fourished.
Witness my peony rose. Four buds!!
Salvia Chiapensis reblooming!!
If the cool temps remain, even for a week or two, other plants will start to recover, more blooms will appear and my fall garden will flourish. With every loss comes new life. How happy that the garden shows me this truth in every season.
Now I've got to go to the garden center for a new hose. This one has permanent kinkitis. Who says I haven't been watering!
