Summer down under, hot and dry no doubt.

36C here today with very strong wind, there mightn't be much garden left by the time our cool change arrives.

Here are two daylilies, plus the Tiger Lily 'Jessica'.

Just bits and pieces. This rose is Altissimo, but the other came to me without a name , it sure is a beauty. Given to me by a guy who was getting rid of his roses.

I just checked and it actually got to 39C here today. My tomato plants wilted by lunchtime so I did a bit of watering then, I haven't had a chance to check everything though. Pleased you like my flowers, angeldogs.

39C i can take that also.dont like it over 18-20 when working i sweat to bad.
Must be a dry heat for them to wilt that fast. we get a lot of humidity with the heat which makes it feel even hotter
