See how full this asparagus fern is ...
And now in August!
What the rabbits didn't eat here, the heat has destroyed.
These are the only ones doing even half way decent --
The crown of thorns survives but both the flowers and leaves are faded ... actually this picture looks better than the actual plant today.
This guy is a survivor, but you can see why ... it's deadly to get close to it. Those needles are sharp and have a crooked end that goes into you, but not out. This is one even the rabbits leave alone.
And these two seem to be holding their own on the front patio in the shade where it still reaches 110 in the afternoon ...
I'm just going to have a glass of iced tea, choose a good book and chill until fall! Stay cool, my friends.
