The weather continues to be extremely hot. The garden is just surviving, but not thriving. It is times like this that I think I should only have plants that positively relish hot, drought conditions in the garden.
Most of the plants on the slope survive well, but of course some are summer dormant. At least here I know the majority of the plants will recover with the first autumn rain which could come any time after the 15th (at least in the form of afternoon storms).
When taking images of the slope there is always something to catch my eye, today it was this beautiful dragonfly.
I’ve been reading about autumnal signs on some posts (can’t quite believe that, as it is still very much high summer here). What’s showing signs of stress in your garden? Is it still hot or are temperatures cooling down making it more pleasant to be outside?
