Yes, it’s hot, but the most daunting condition for our gardens is no rain.  Most of our plants are adapted to the heat but the lack of moisture is a killer.  I keep telling myself to persevere.  The rain will surely come one of these days.  I’m struggling to keep even the old stand by, crepe myrtle, from wilting and dying.  I have sandy soil so proper watering is always a challenge.
