Hail

Today was a record breaker, at 99 degrees.  Humidity was over 50%.  Then, finally tonight a brief thunderstorm rolled in, bringing hail and rain.

Impossible to work in the yard at all today, although I did plant a blushing pink knockout rose by the front steps, and weeded a little.  Also tried planting out the zinnia seedlings, but it was so hot, and the ground was so dry even though I had watered yesterday.  So this rain is welcome, even with hail.

The zinnia seedlings really didn't work out.  Too little, and spring came on too fast!  I don't think I'll try seeds again.  They get lost in the emerging spring stuff.

I love the spirea frtischiana Pink Parasols... looks good the year for the first time.
