Bloomed @ 45 degree celsius

This Summer has been the hottest of last thirty years ,Temperature has touched 47 degree celsius which was a record in itself  for the city .The dry days with long day hours that too with hot winds where temperature at daytime moves between 45 - 47 degree celsius makes it impossible scene for flora to survive and flourish ,but we can call it by God's Grace or blessings given by the Almighty of Nature,there were some plants who did beat the Heatwaves and bloomed to my surprise...

      Sunflowers looking into face of the Sun   ...

                                           


Portulacas giving some color to otherwise colorless dry garden...                                                       




Zinnias the Hardy summer Annuals blooming alonwith a surprise of petunias at the back in the same pot,as Zinnias were planted with forethought that Petunias would die back automatically leaving the space for Zinnias but they survived somehow the Summer Heat...WOW!!!



 A closeup of the above Zinnia...

 Some more Petunias which were kept in the shade are blooming too..Yipee!!


 That too there color is intact with hotness at 45 degree celsius ...thats a gift of god I guess!!

A surprise was sudden bloom of beautiful double coloured Miniature canation                         

 Ruellias the Drought resistant plants blooming with pretty pink charm..

 Oleander again a Hardy perennial giving a vibrant pink environment along with 

whole year blooming Bougainvillea


We can always hope for the flowers blooming throughout the year in our region ...just by being patient since little patience will give Monsoon in a few days rejuvenating the plants again..

Have a bloomy week..                                                                                                  

Whats blooming around the world ,look over to Garden Blogger Blooms Day and enjoy the blooms...

  6. Oh your temperatures are really very high! I can relate to you because during our dry season when it hits 37C, we cannot anymore stay outside for a few minutes, thanks to the airconditioning uits. I can't imagine that many plants can still survive your hot temperatures. Maybe you are always watering them. Our soil crack during those times.
