...but not all flowers...

...foliage...

...but not all foliage.

Some unwanted plants came back from bits of root:

Some wanted plants came back, too:

Some plants died...
Photobucket
...while some thrived...
Photobucket
...others thrived and fried...

at the  very same time.

An Echeveria came back from the dead...

...a glorious rose soldiered on...
Photobucket
...Thrips were killed off...
Photobucket
...a Gerbera rebloomed...
Photobucket
...some plants survived due to shade...
Photobucket
...others due to care.

Now the heat has eased...
Photobucket
...and the garden has taken on an October glow.

  3. Funny how heat damage can look alot like frost damage. My gardens look like this right now too, but due to the cold. :-)

  4. Glad to hear the heat is easing off for you now. I've never had much heat damage in my UK garden. In fact, this year we haven't had much heat either.
