  •  Nice diary Melanie, cattails are cool plants, (5+ / 0-)

    always been one of my favorites. We have them in our yard pond and they grow wild in the clay pit. They even grow in the road ditches in places that hold water for any length of time. They are definitely a hardy plant .

    They predicted 108 here today and we had 109 on our thermometer a half hour ago. Won't be taking any nature walks today. Dragon flies seem to be doing well in all this unusual heat, many of them swarming over the yard the last few days. Talked to a farmer neighbor this morning and he says he is probably going to lose all of his corn this year unless we get an honest rain within the next few days. They are actually calling for some this weekend so maybe we'll get lucky this round. He also said he was already feeding hay to his cattle because the grass wasn't growing  and on top of that he wouldn't get a second cutting of hay this year either. He is like me and can never remember a year that it's been this dry this early. Mid Missouri is cooking.
