At least the garden seems to be happy. Here’s an arrangement from the back garden, picked this morning. Alstromeria, Iris, Roses, Crocosmia and Snapdragons.

Yes, heat does have some good uses. Still, I’d rather have more temperate readings on the thermometer.
Me too, I really don’t like the heat.
Was just reading your latest post. So cool.
You have lovely flowers. I have droopy weeds. **sigh**
A-choo! They’re pretty but they’re assassins to people like me who have allergies.
Hold your breath, George.
Nice. Let’s see a closeup of the books!
You’ve seen it all before, Jeff.
I think we have again having a Portland spring-summer. Rain and cool temps.
We’ll take some heat in Chicago and you can have our rain. Doesn’t it belong over there in Oregon anyway? My sunflowers are growing tall but yet to bloom. And we’re beginning to worry about the potato beetle infestation in the vegetable garden. Joe had to remove by hand some disgusting looking larvae and smother them. Yeech!
Yes, we’d take 10-15 degrees cooler, rain or no rain. We set the record for: June days w/o rain, June days over 80, June days 90 or over.
Those large couldn’t be any worse than slugs, which abound here just about year round.
