It’s getting hot! A few of the snapdragons have begun to recover from the rust, but then with the hot spell, they’ve begun to wilt in the afternoon, and that makes them all the more susceptible to the fungus.

In another few weeks, it will be so hot that the blooming season for snapdragons and our other winter flowers will be over. Then, I’ll cut back the plants, keep watering, and when the summer rains come, we may have a second burst of healthy blooms!

At any rate, all the snapdragons are looking healthy enough that I think they’ll recover and bring us more flowers next autumn.
