Some Beauty Among the Heat

The forecast for St. Louis today is 107!
I only go out to water and run back in, I hate this.
Although somethings seem to love the heat.
My hibiscus bush is loaded daily with beautiful blooms.
It seems to be enjoying the heat.

The blooms are so gorgeous. Wish they were the kind you could cut and bring in.
Have a wonderful Pink Saturday!
Stay cool.

Anne, That hibicus is really pretty. Somethings seem to be loving the heat and some aren't doing so well in it. I am one of the things that's not loving it so much.. Smiles, Susie

Looks great, Ann. I have been dragging hoses around for days! Pray for rain when that front comes through tonight!

Yes, I have seen hibiscus in the tropics. They love heat! But that kind of heat in St Louis is just wrong! Golly I hope you get a break here soon!

I love your pink hibiscus bush. I planted one a few years ago but it never produced anymore flowers after the first year...boo hoo :-(

Pink is my absolute favorite color!!!

Your hibiscus is just beautiful. Here in Ontario it is 101 with the humidity is feels like 114 ~ I feel your pain. My poor garden is not liking all this heat. Hopefully, there will be a respite from the heat soon ;-)

Mine isn't doing so well. Lots of buds but very few blooms. Just waiting on the temps to go down(sometime around midnight) and for some rain!
Hope you get some rain at both places.

Your hibiscus is beautiful! I only go out to water, also! Really miss the daily walks. I think I will plant hibiscus next year for my garden. Have a great week ahead!

Hi Anne, 107 is awfully hot. I can usually handle the heat but I think that's a little too hot. Your Hibiscus is gorgeous! Mine is not blooming yet, but last year it was gorgeous. I actually have 3, but only the one on my W. side does wonderful. Hope you get some relief soon.
Hugs,
Jann

Beautiful flowers, Anne! I can't believe your heat- it is hot here but not THAT hot. Hope it starts cooling there soon-xo Diana

Oh you poor things. We are supposed to get hot but 107 is just toooo hot. I hope relief is coming soon.

What a beautiful hibiscus!
The size and colour is really wonderful!
I hope things cool down for you soon.
I don't handle the heat very well and it sure sounds hot where you are, poor thing!
Happy Pink Saturday.
blessings..Trish
