Hit's Hott!...

I am not melting yet, but it is hot here.

Watering, watering. Everything dries out so fast, both from the heat, and from the incessant winds we have.

Weeding, always weeding. We weed a space big enough to make it worthwhile, then plant, plant, plant.

This evening we planted an Angel's Trumpet (pale yellow), a 'Flare' rose mallow, 2 pots of lilies, 1 Turk's cap, 5 pineapple sage, and moved many melampodium.

In the weeds, I found 3 verbena (red), LOTs of Society garlic, a nice pavonia rock rose, and 3 firebushes that look great with a little grooming,

There is still about a cazillion plants to put in the ground.

Tomorrow, we will set plumbago, esperanza, salvia, rosa 'Peggy Martin', RED porterweed, hardy begonia, Pride of Barbados, ginger, bulbine, ginger and ginger. And.....I have some additional melampodium, pepper 'Medusa', and pots of coreopsis to put in the orange and yellow garden.......... If I get that far!
