first day of summer here, first rose mallow (Hibiscus moscheutos (Common Rose mallow))

First rose mallow in the yard this year; early bee... Not sure if I chose the correct botanical name or not.

It's felt like summer for a long time, hasn't it? You must have the same sweltering temps in Louisiana that we have in Georgia.

Oh, yes ma'am! 101 degrees yesterday; then, we had a blessed thunderstorm for all of 5 minutes. %>

Not quite as bad here - "only" 94, and then about a five-minute thunderstorm. Water restrictions are sure to come.
