No Blooms in the Greenhouse for Bloom Day

The only thing blooming in the greenhouse is a lanky tomato plant. The temperature is too high for fruit set so it just gets taller.

Outside, Tillandsea cyanea has bright bracts but no blue blossoms as yet.

Most of the greenhouse plants summering outside are waiting for cool weather or short days before setting buds.

Lucky us, our weather is cool enough for everything to be blooming now. I understand why you're looking forward to fall but for us, summer can stay as long as it wants!

I should have been more exacting in what is or isn't blooming. Naturally the continuous bloomers like Rusellia and Begonias are blooming outdoors but seasonal bloomers like Schlumbergera and Calla Lilies are just marking time.

The garden looks good -- the gardener has about melted in heat and humidity.
