Flowers from my garden





My sweet peas did very well this year and my sunflowers have done well, too.  But, yesterday it was 107 degrees here and Friday it was 108 and I'm afraid that is THE END of my sweet peas.  They are all going to seed and drying out.  SUMMER IS HERE!  Today, however, it should be 10 degrees cooler.  I have quite a few sunflowers and when they are done, the finches come and enjoy them, so I just let them go.  I don't have a garden out front this year...not with the drought.  Oh, well...there's always next year.  I've been throwing our old coffee grounds on the sweet peas and they have responded by climbing almost 6 feet, along our dog run fence!  :-)
