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.
