My garden looks different from its usual self.

The roses that like our dry heat have lots of disease and are sulking.
Once-bloomers have had a great time and a long display of blooms which would normally fry quickly in the heat.

A lot of my rose companions took forever to start blooming... Spring flush took such a long time to get going that I took very few pictures of the plant combinations - they weren't blooming together!

On the other hand, the colors look very rich and saturated, probably because of all the extra rain and gentle warmth we have been having.
Still, I can't help wishing it would warm up a bit.
