It's hot. Almost every day, the temperature is near 100 degrees. And it has been dry for almost two months. Every plant in the yard is showing stress.
The loquat is loosing leaves in the heat.
The coleus is faded.
The aucuba is sunburned.
The roses blooms dehydrate almost as soon as they open.
Potted plants like this mexican mint marigold are suffering the most since their caretaker doesn't want to venture into the heat to water.
The bouganvillas are barely hanging on.
Even the moss rose, who looks comparatively good, is shriveling a little.
