a day of relief
It is so hot here in Northern California. Yesterday my car thermometer read 101 F. Today it is hot and windy. My poor iris don't really stand a chance with all the dry heat. They last a day and then are all shriveled up. Some years I get really great blooms that last a few weeks and some years I don't get much. Good thing I don't make a living off flowers. I just love seeing all of the different color combinations out there.
I purchased a whole bunch of day lilies this past winter and they are all starting to grow. I got a mixed batch of colors so that will be exciting to see what all came in the package. I love day lilies because they bloom so long throughout the hot summer. Maybe I should get out and pull some weeds. Nah, those will be there tomorrow when it is supposed to be a little cooler.
