Well Kitty darlin' - this is Texas so it's expected.  But for your neck of
the woods, that kind of heat sounds a tad extreme.  It must be incredibly
hard on plants that aren't accustomed to such.  All I can tell you is - keep
water on the more sensitive stuff and know that cooler weather is
coming.  At least you don't get those temps for months on end.  What's up w/
it being so warm up there?
