The Lantana seems to like it hot.
At 103 degrees on the thermometer, they
seem to be thriving.
Gerbera daisy that is starting to look a little ragged.
I thought it still made a colorful and interesting subject though.
Lantana in the very late afternoon sun.
The Cuban Oregano is doing well in the
hot weather. The furry leaves have a wonderful
fragrance when rubbed between your fingers.
Mexican heather is in the background and it also is
doing quite well.
Sanvitalia in the blue pot.
These tough little flowers are wilting
a bit during the hottest part of the afternoon.
This purple coneflower isn't as pristine as it was but
the very bright center spikes made it an interesting subject.
This butterfly happened to light and pose for me very briefly
before fluttering off.
The yellowed leaves of a "Red Cascade" rose are in the background.
I like the color of the blue slate in this image.
Tall Garden Phlox-- "Bright Eyes" I think.
