Too hot!

Phew!  What a crazy day (as in scary crazy), as the temperature reached 85 degrees.  One warm day doth not global warming make, but it sure didn't feel right.

My garden responded accordingly:  a number of my tulips opened, and many of my plants just burst out of the ground.  It was actually too hot to do much work in the garden.  I did manage to move the joe-pye weed that came up too close to the cherry tree that I recently planted, and (in some premature enthusiasm) put my hollyhocks into the ground.  I was sure to water everything thoroughly.

Indoors, my hibiscus, snapdragons and campanula have germinated.

  1. I read that it hit 92 in Portland... it felt quite grim.
