This week was a hard one, for plants and outdoor workers.
We broke some heat records, 3 days of scorching heat that was finally relieved by a passing thunderstorm. A storm was never so welcome - to ease the heat and water the gardens.
I got a photo as the first drops began to fall and the dark clouds moved in.
The plants were happy to get some much needed water too!
I'm linking in to Fertilizer Friday with Tootsie!
This beautiful poppy grew in the bean patch this year, I'm still not quite sure HOW it got there, but I'm not complaining!
