Fry an Egg Day.....

 The Easter lilies get planted outside each year after the season. I have three of them up now blooming with the past years just plantted in the ground.

There are lots of buds on the individual stems so they should last a while.  I am watering them to encourage them because predicted rains are not happeing.

The drought is hard on the knock out roses.  I have to dead head all three bushes now hoping that they will rebud in a better time of the year. 

The William Bafin rose looks about the same as the knock outs except for this one bunch of roses that seem to be surviving. 

The dry weather is keeping things from germinating. You can see only one row of zinnias came up among the four or five rows of them planted here.  I can move some of them to make another row of the ones that have come up but  I can't do it during this heat. I had two new packets of zinnia seeds and only one of them germinated. The seed I collected from last years bloom is not germinating. 

I need to water this rose again. I will wait until evening and put rain water from the barrel on it.. We are hot again today with temperatures around 100 degrees F.  The air is humid today with a strong breeze. Some parts of the state are geting storms but not us.  Thanks for stopping by today.

Your photos of the lilies are gorgeous. It has been many years since I grew knock out roses. I really do love that peach colored rose you have. I pray you will get much needed rain soon, be careful in the extreme heat yourself.
