It's sure been H~O~T here. For the past couple mornings, around 6:00 a.m. we awake to a 2-3 minute downpour and then sunshine and H~E~A~T the rest of the day. Not enough water to give the plants a good drink. So, we water, and water, and water. Already my plants could use a good pruning and some have already had that done. They are almost top heavy!! But I take pride in the colors of the garden that is in the front of the house and also pride in the garden in the back which receives morning sun and shade the rest of the day. I've taken a few photos of the back garden that has my ferns, gardenias, and hydrangeas. I've added a few annuals to give the garden some pops of color.

I am truly amazed that the ferns even grew back because of the two freezes we had this winter but they surprised me with their hardiness. Mother Nature never ceases to amaze me!
I did manage to make a batch of dark chocolate Brownies for Husband today to celebrate Fathers Day. I hope all the dads out there were remembered and had a special day with their children!
