I went out to see my garden at 8:00 p.m. yesterday.
Everything was wilting in the 102 degree heat....still 102 at 8:00 p.m.!






My "Arkansas Traveler" tomatoes are the only ones which have managed to put on a tomato and here they are, wilted and tired!



I did an intense watering with the hose, and knew the cooler temps after dark would help too!





This morning, plants are upright (except for the heavy sunflower heads). I have hope....maybe I will still get some tomatoes or at least some more zinnias! Zinnias are about to bloom....even some soft green ones from seeds given my gardening/quilting friend, Paula!

Meanwhile, the little twins are catching some rest......(from their mom's facebook page!)

Wow! That is HOT! We have been getting in the high 80s here...which is hot for the mountains! But I can't complain! I love seeing the baby pics and the beautiful quilts you've been working on! Enjoy your week! Hugs! ♥

Your part of the country has sure been getting a lot of heat this summer....and we've been cooler than usual. I guess you're getting all the heat from us....sorry!
