The gardenias are in full bloom and scenting the air with the most WONDERFUL fragrance!!!! I clipped a couple to help scent my rooms at home AND my office ....
Thank you all for your kind comments and good wishes. Thank heavens, and you, yesterday was a MUCH better day -- whew --- and today, it's going to be a balmy 90F instead of the 100+ we've been experiencing.
The heat and lack of rain has begun affecting the plants though and already, even with watering, we're beginning to see the stress on many of the small trees and perennials. It's going to be a long, hot summer, I'm afraid.
Stay cool ....! And once more, many,many thanks...!
