July week 3

And I thought the previous week was hot!. With temperatures in the 100's, walking outside during week 3 was like walking into an oven! I did visit a couple of sites, however, that were dealing fairly well with the heat wave. Take a look...

At Mattey's Garden next to the Matthew Whaley School:
purple hyacinth bean,
zinnias,
squash blossoms,
Mexican petunia,
and this plant, which I can't remember the name of.
At a friend's house:
indigofera,
a drooping pineapple lily,
hibiscus,
Joe-pye weed,
and phlox.
Around town:
false aloe,
ironweed,
giant coneflower,and paw paws.And at my house:
spiderlilies.
You can see the rest of the week's photos here.
