Really Beyond Hot....

Oh my, 102 is really hot.  It was 105 in Denver yesterday.  I grew up on the east coast, so temperatures pretty well matched how hot it was, humidity making it worse.  Here in Colorado, being a mile closer to the sun, 70 degrees can feel like 80-85 degrees.  So you can imagine what 102 must feel like.  There are many fires burning in Colorado now, which makes the sky smokey and the air smoggy.  No fun for asthmatics like me.  Ah, enough complaining.  Today will be 95 and tomorrow will be only 70!!!  A day of much needed rain and then the heat is on again.  Keeping my potted plants alive has been such a challenge.  Some sun loving flowers are in the shade because of the heat.  I crocheted a lot yesterday, took my son for an x-ray of his ankle, which is fine after spraining it weeks ago; went to physical therapy for my hip where cupping has been a huge help.  No bruising, so that's nice.  Got the dogs out at 6am this morning for a walk, which has been less painful with the cupping!

I can't remember the name of the flowers in the top picture.  But, they have been incredibly heat resistant and very showy.  The flowers all close in the evening and open by mid morning.  I love them.  I've even been able to root a few and plant them in other pots.

The bottom picture are the heat-dried flowers.  They may survive.  We'll see!!  Happy Friday!!
