A Hot Day.....

 The hot weather helps to cause so many different cloud formations. The sun is behind there somewhere.

The old leaky birdbath makes a great planter for the moss rose. As the day progresses the flowers start to shrink back from all of the heat. 

Being a leaky planter I can not worry about over watering it.  It is actually a perfect growing situation with me and the watering can or the rains that fall on it. 

The daylily was purchased at an arboretum in which you paid a price, like a grab bag, buying an unidentified plant, and took a chance. It is a similar variety that I already have but its color is much more intense. 

My one new clematis has a pathetic bloom. I do hope it gets to be more robust in the size. I am glad it is growing. 

This day lily is just starting to open up its buds. It is a nice bloom with the ruffy edges.  It is a hot and high humidity day. I didn't go out to do any work today. The yard really didn't need to be mowed today anyway.  Thanks for stopping by today.
