The glow after a very hot day on Tuesday was asking to be photographed. It really was the beginning of a stormy evening.
Iowa’s temperatures are really abnormal right now as well as other parts of the United States. We had a break from the heat Wednesday but today will be another hot one.
The flowers at the farm are blooming. I also have spirea bushes and a mock orange bush blooming. The smell of sweet flowers is in the air. I brought back some more hosta plants from the old yard along with one iris that I didn’t get moved.
The flower is beat up from the rain storm but the flowers on this iris looked great. I had not dug any part of it to bring to the new place and that has been corrected. It had big rhizomes and I was able to dig it out. I think I will plant it first in a flower pot and keep it alive in the shade of the deck. It is just too hot to try to put it out in the garden with hot sun.
I am home today doing lots of odd jobs in the morning. It will be its hottest this afternoon so I must get all things done this morning. I mowed at the farm yesterday and I could tell the heat was slowing down the growth of the grass. Our yards look like they are going from lush green to the hot summer look of late August. I am going to water flower gardens every day no matter what. Thanks for stopping by today.
