RAINY, HAZY, CRAZY DAYS OF SUMMER

So little is blooming in my poor hot garden.
I am just grateful its alive.

I always love a pop of red.   How is your garden?
  The heat factor is in the triple-digit temps.

My gardening days are long gone until
the middle of Sept.
Till then I will depend on blogland for color.

Enjoy your new week, Kathy

  1. The heat can sure be draining on our gardens! I love the baby shower in the post below! Adorable! Thank you for telling me I can make the Buttermilk pie into custard dessert! The first time I made it I thought it sure tasted like custard! Oh my is it yummy! Thanks for the visit!

    Hugs,

  3. It has been hot and humid in Michigan and this is the first year I've had my Cosmo's die out. Hardly any rain yet I hate to complain,enough time to do that when the snow comes.

  5. I love red flowers - they are always so bright and cheery! My window box has bloomed nicely, but for some reason my pots are not looking too good - guess I need to do a bit more watering. They don't look as nice as yours:)

  6. Lovely mosaic, your red flowers seem to be withstanding the heatjust fine.
    Here in Normandy the weather is very changeable, with lots of rain, so the garden is thriving.
    Thanks for stopping by

  8. Oh Kathy...I wish you could see our garden it is pathetic but cooler weather is just around the corner and that means another pop of color and harvest before the first freeze in December.

  10. Oh wow! Your plants look a whole lot better than mine. I am consoled though in knowing that the dead plants will at least look good with the Halloween decor ;)

    Thanks for stopping by and introducing yourself! I love your blog and your posts.....I will now be following you around. Be sure and leave me a cat snack from time to time ;) And please give the junkyard dog, Jake, a good ear scritching from "her" - "she" thinks he's pretty handsome!

    Purrs!

  11. Everything's droopy in this heat, including us! LOL
    My snaps barely recovered from the last heatwave--had to redouble watering efforts. But the potted hen-and-chicks are doing fine.
    Leave it to the succulents to thrive while the blooms shrivel!
    It's been way too long since I went visiting.
    I just love it here. You always have nice things to share, and I'm loving your banner all over again.
