Suffering from Heat Fatigue

Once my camera was free of condensation was able to take this picture. We did get some rain, but not enough to really soak the plants. Japanese tree peony completely kaput from the hot weekend. And, have never seen this before but it looks as if several varieties of Tricyrtis (Toad Lily) have melted in the heat. Parts of their leaves and stems have collapsed in sections - it's not pretty - hopefully they will have enough time to rebound and will still bloom this fall. Hosta that don't see any sun continue to look fabulous - those that get bright sunlight later in the day are showing leaf damage. Really do look like they've been splashed with hot molten liquid. Here's hoping we get the scheduled rain this afternoon & perhaps some cooler weather!
