As of today, we have experienced 85 days with a high temperature at or above 100 degrees. The average yearly number of 100 degree days in Austin, Texas is 13.5 - I'm thinking this year will be pushing that average up quite a bit. The previous yearly record for the most 100 degree days was 69 set in 1925 - that record has been absolutely shattered. And to make matters worse, rainfall has been almost non-existent in my garden for most of the year.
Needless to say, participating in Digging's Foliage Follow-up is a bit of struggle.
Be sure to visit Digging to see what foliage can be found in other's gardens. Hope theirs is faring better than mine!
