28 July 2016


has finally broken. It's only 81º right now (predicted high of 93º) and feels like such a relief. My lysimachia looks like it's dying (no worries about that plant becoming invasive!) the hostas and salvia have sunburnt leaves, bee balm is wilted and daisies have finally quit blooming and turned all brown. I water as much as I can but still only use repurposed (dripping taps, tank wastewater, dishwashing and the kids' occasional cavorting with the hose) as I expect the landscaping plants to hold their own through the summer without much attention. If they don't make it, I'll plant something else until I get what thrives.
Like the flowering purslane. It just looks happy, no matter how scorching hot the day is.
