We’ve been having a heat wave here for about a week. Temps have been peaking at 95-105 F each afternoon, and night temps have not cooled off like usual. It is supposed to finally cool this weekend. I like it hot, but this is a bit more than ideal even for me, especially since my AC has been temperamental (still awaiting repair). It’s hard to keep the plants happy when it gets this hot, though a few tropical plants look quite pleased with the higher than normal humidity. The mandevilla vine is blooming well and the baby seedlings that it made last fall are taking off. The pretty white flowers have a really lovely soft scent, gentler and cleaner than jasmine or gardenia. I should try to get some photos.
My brother may come up tomorrow for the weekend, which would be nice. Hope you have a fun holiday weekend!
