103 is still to hot!
So I will keep planning my garden. The good point now over the planning I will do this winter is-- in about two weeks the temps should drop and I will be able to do a lot of fall planting.
Big on my list is the white bombshell hydrangea.
It will work perfectly in the spot I have chosen. I will plant about 5 of them and make a hedge that will separate us from the neighbor. It blooms in summer right when we need something new to bloom.
For my tiny patio area, I will concentrate on butterfly's and bees.
When I was at Lowe's this morning the bee balm plants were just humming away with bees, making the local honey I love so much.
The colors were so pretty, but at 103 temps, now is not a good time to plant.
I will also be planting milkweed, and try to attract butterfly's.
Also will plant a butterfly bush. I had one in my old garden and it was planted by the patio, the smell was heavenly. So one of those is also on my list.
Maybe staying in away from the heat and smoke is not such a bad thing.
