I don't have a thing blooming in the garden and I don't have much else to post about. We went to Lowe's see if there were any plants that might make it in this heat. Most of the plants there were just as stressed as mine. This pink-flowered Echeveria in full bloom caught my eye and I couldn't wait to get it home! The only info on the plant said it would do well in full sun. I'm sure they didn't mean the Arizona sun! I am going to keep it inside until the temps go down. Afterwards it should do well on my east patio.
We are getting ready for a camping trip to cool Arizona country--just in time to get out of the heat! One thing about Arizona, we have all kinds of climates here, depending on the elevation, and to get to high country only takes a couple of hours. The temperatures will be at least 25 degrees cooler than the desert in the daytime, and probably 40-50 degrees cooler at night. Hopefully the monsoon will bring enough rain to green the desert while we are gone. (No chance for a cool spell though, we're in for high heat for another two months at least. After being in the cool pines, it will be hard to come home to the dry hot desert!
