I got nothing. Except these. I've told you about my slight aversion to large, tropical flowers. I don't know why. The hibiscus are coming out next year. They simply take up all the room in the little garden outside of my bedroom. They do not delight me. I am thinking of replacing them with miniature roses.
This plant is growing on me. Each flower is striking in its color scheme. I think I'll let it stay.
We are in the hot and dry part of summer. Haven't had rain for a long time. With it too hot to enjoy being outside during the day, I am surprised to see dew in the mornings. The dew point makes it hotter during the day.
Still fighting the rats. They will not touch the poison in the locked feeders. I have just about given up. One has crawled up into my raised planter and tunneled around. Just about killed all of my vegetables. It has even been eating my teeny tomatoes. I set a trap in it, but it didn't take the bait.
But the days march on. Summer is flying by and the grands are not happy about having four more weeks before school starts. Son moved back last week and is nearby. We found out they are having a little boy near Christmas. I think they are shocked as they were sure it was another little girl. Nevertheless, they will be thrilled when he gets here.
Hope your summer is going swimmingly.
