It's a crispy hot day here, 101 by a thermometer ten feet away from this plant and 97 by a local TV station's reckoning. Not at all humid by Austin standards, just 41%. You can tell by the wrinkly edges that I just started watering a little while ago. Thank God for our drip system, a sprinkler would probably kill half the plants we have in sun like this, even at 6:30 p.m.
There are a bunch of other blooms about to pop, and I couldn't be more excited. Gardening is cool.
