Hot Hot Hot

That’s what it’s been like in Washington lately. Sunday the high was 92 degrees. It is of course also very humid. To get an idea of how hot it is for the first week in October the low on Monday was above the average high for the day. All of this hot weather and so little rain has finally begun to kill off the petunias I have in my flower boxes on the front porch. It doesn’t seem to make any difference how much I water them.

However, the flowers in the back yard are another story. I have been very attentive and watering often and the flowers in the back are blooming like crazy. Here are a a couple of pictures:

In the next couple of days a cold front will be coming through and it should feel much more like fall.
