Our dreadful heatwave has disappated. Time to check on the havoc it left behind. Some plants failed completely:
...bleaching even on plants you'd expect could handle heat...
Some roses turned a strange tan color.
Others seemed hardly touched.
The thuggish plants seemed delighted. No surprise there:
The long-suffering, unwatered Hymnocallis was also unfazed.
While the Dahlias, though increasingly bedraggled by their long summer (they've been blooming since late April), still produce beauty.
So nice to be outside again.
