Still Pretty as a Picture Despite the Heat

Love the colorful accents!

Here’s the bad news: It’s already too hot in Houston.

A yellow lily reaches out.

Followed up by worse news: Summer hasn’t officially begun.

Wonder what the seed balls contain.

Of course, anyone who has lived in Houston for awhile knows that scorching days await us. It’s the hell that we pay for our mild, heavenly winters.

Horsemint blend with black-eyed Susans.

Temperatures in the high 80s have wreaked havoc with so many of the wildflowers I love. Bluebonnets, we hardly knew ye! But some plants still are going strong, keeping the landscape lush and pretty.

A trio of Indian blankets hang on.

I’m not sure how much longer these beautiful blooms will last. So I plan to enjoy them as much as I can!
