Spud,

That's cool about the bee highway.  I would love to see that done here.

Tigridias are fun.  Each flower lasts one day.   They usually send up a succession of flowers, but it still plays to plant a group of them.

This seems to be the season for orangy-yellow and cinnamon red-brown.  These, daylilies, nasturtiums, and marigolds.  They look nice together, but the combination was not planned.

Daniel, those day lilies are beautiful, and those peaches make my mouth water.  Some cream or ice cream to go with them would taste excellent.

Joan, you got a hotter day than I did, but it's been over 100 for several days now.  Good thing I started 4 kinds of watermelon this year instead of only 1 as I had planned.  They appreciate this heat.

Patricia, glad to hear what Rick is doing.  I was wondering also.

Plinius, congratulations on rescuing the tayberry.

Comment by Randall Smith on Monday

Those peaches look divine, Daniel! I've lost a branch already due to weight. I never prune my trees--just let nature do it.  When I visited the Smokies (Nat. Park) many years ago, I saw an old homestead with a scraggly looking apple tree. It was loaded with the best looking apples I ever saw. I decided right then, I'm never going to prune again. Mother nature know best.

The tayberry I rescued some months ago from a dumpstore starts to flower! Must be a survivor!

Daniel, 15 years, eh? So goes the adage of the wise man planting in whose shade he will never sit ... my nectarines will be for future generations.

Hot here too, and humid.  And so I resort to indoor projects. :)

Comment by Patricia on Monday

Yes, we are sweltering & I hate heat with a passion!!!

Rick will be grabbing basil as soon as the temp goes down enough for him to stand it out there, tomatoes are developing, blooms on the melons, 1 broccoli 'bolted', but everything else seems ok so far. He's got celery going & he has them in big pots to keep the moisture up. Peas will need picking soon, & the beans are climbing rapidly.

Comment by Joan Denoo on Monday

Patricia, Oh Yes!! whipped cream is perfect!

How is Rick's garden growing? 

Are you having a temperature spike this month? 

Comment by Patricia on Monday

Shall I whip up some cream, Daniel?

Comment by Joan Denoo on Monday

Spud, it sounds like you are having a dry spell, too. And the heat is terrible. I had to come in before 11 AM and Spokane had the highest temperature for June on record. Today was 105 degrees. We don't usually get that scorching heat until August. 

OH dear! This will be a bad fire season. We had so much rain earlier and have lots of grass growing on the hills. Conditions are right for fires.
