Some nice ones Mike!! How are the temps up your way?

It has been brutal here but thankfully yesterday the humidity was a lot lower and temps dropped into the mid 60s last night!!!! It was SOOO nice to finally feel a little cool weather! High today is only 96 - amazing how much better that feels with lower humidity than 100 plus with high humidity!

My daughter and I were in Dallas on Monday and Tuesday and temps were 106 and with all that concrete it was so unbelievably hot!!! They said it hit 105 here so it was really hot here too - glad to see the temps fall some!


Hazel Crest, IL(Zone 5a)

Genna our temps has been in the eighties. The next few days will be close to ninenty. Chicago will have the " air and water show" this weekend. There will be a small chance for rain tomorrow. I will be posting some more August blooms this weekend.

I very happy and excited to say that my daughter Mega will be getting things se up for her firs chance at teaching. She has worked hard the past 5 1/2 years to get where she is at today. Getting married, working, going to school and having a baby and there is another on the way. So very proud that she has accomplished all she set out to do. I will really miss working with her but this has been her dream since she started school.

The Royal Butterfly almost got lost in the Aster, they look like my 'September Ruby', I love the shot with the gazebo structure in the background. Your Bitsy has the foliage I prefer. You've got good taste Mike!

Hazel Crest, IL(Zone 5a)

Gee, thanks Robin. LOL ! That is Blast From The Past surrounded by asters. I found scapes on After awhile Crocodile and Jay Farquar. These are first scapes. Feeling excited right now.

Catching back up on this thread and LOVING all the beautiful blooms! No blooms here - even the crepe myrtle blooms are pretty much done in, about the ONLY thing I have left blooming is 4:00s and my surprise lillys have just popped up. Thankfully the temps have dropped substantially and we are currently experiencing really cool temps for us for August. We have highs in the upper 80s but it has been dropping to mid to low 60s at night and it is AMAZING in the mornings! :) We finally got some rain last weekend as well - so at least my plants don't feel like they are being fried every day!

Mike, all those blooms are absolutely stunning!! Thanks for sharing all your beauty and hard work with us!

Kathy I am a little late, but congratulations to you and your daughter! It is awesome to finally reach that milestone she has been working so hard for! I know you are very proud of her. I hope she loves her teaching job! God bless her because I know we need good teachers, but I would end up killing some of those kids! LOL

Hope everyone has a great rest of the week!

Hazel Crest, IL(Zone 5a)

Genna you are welcome.

Camden, AR(Zone 8a)

Mike, and everyone, are all the blooms finished or do you still have blooms going?
