It's official we have beaten the old record of 50 days over 100 degrees in Oklahoma City. The heat has been brutal and I have to make sure I change the nectar in the feeders every two to three days. My little hummingbirds have been so active...an even a red-tailed hawk has been hanging around. Mr T (our resident turtle) came out of hiding yesterday as our sprinklers came on...I'm sure he loves playing in the sprinklers like my boys did when they were little!!
While most of my flowers are not flowering at all this heat has allowed me to notice the plants that have tolerated this summer heatwave and still bloomed.
Next year I am going to be sure and plant
more of these varities!
Lady in Red Salvia
Hyacinth bean vine
Sweet Potatoe Vine
I would definitely say these are winners for hot, dry summers.
I am looking forward to some cooler weather with fall just around the corner...
it will be time to clean up the garden and plant my beds with pansies, pumpkins and mums!!
I'm linking with Susan's Outdoor Wednesdays..
go by and visit everyone this week!
