These Lilliums got burnt while they were in bud
during the first heat wave.
Crispy edges saved them from going to market.
First sun flower for the season.
I am a fan!
Lions tail is a South African shrub
It is not fazed by the heat,
the flowers last well in the vase too.
The corn flowers got
too big for themselves and flopped over filling the
center of this circle...snap dragons
having a second flush.
There is some basil in this circle also.
Mum gave me some special sunflower seeds,
they are surrounding this garden
....nearly ready to harvest
The Ixias are long finished and not too
many Lilliums left in this bed.
The feral rabbits destroyed about 80 bulbs...
With the forest so close, this is my
Farmer Brown section!
As you can see, the garden
comes right up to the edge of the forest we planted in
I was trying to capture the paddock sprinklers
It is pretty dry out there...
amazing to have any grass left after this heat wave.
Day 4 of this latest heat wave.
I will be staying inside with the cooler on.
4 days over 40 degrees is a marathon...
a cool change is expected this evening
