Things are going better plant-wise than they were some days in July - I was beginning to despair.

If you look at the end of my July journal, you'll see my plants are taking a turn for the better!

I'll pop in later tonite or tomorrow morning and show some more pictures.

It's going up to 34 celsius these days - we've just been hosing down the back table a couple of times a day:

There's more pictures at:

I've quit gardening - too hot, for one thing. The most I'm doing is throwing the hose on it every 3 nights.

We're keeping up with the table gardening outside our window. But other than that, I think that's it for this year.

We're looking for a place to live - we want to move on.

its not so much the heat but the humidity that's wearing me out.

Thanks, Sibyl - I notice you are zone 6a, like me. Where are you?

I'm not doing much more than tidying up the lot really - I only go out there in the evening when it's cool.

We're supposed to drop a few degrees, down to about 24 celsius. But with the humidity, even that can be hot.

There's not much going on with me - it's been too hot to garden during the day - today was a bit better though . . .

This is a weed, I guess . . . dunno', but I'm curious to see if anybody knows what it is. I'm wondering if I'll get a flower of some sort on top there - right now it's just a tight little cluster of dunno' . . .

Here's Jeff's Dieffenbacha - he grew this from a cutting taken from the old tall one we had out in the lobby . . .

I don't really know what this is but it's a nice plant (shrub/bush) somebody left out on the lot for us:
