It's a scorcher

When it hit 90 on the second week of this internship, (April 7), I knew it didn't bode well for tolerable new york city summer weather. Today is the third day into a 90+ degree heat wave and the first time gardeners were sent home due to excessive heat. It's garbage night too, so my walk home from class tonight was pretty foetidus, to put it botanically. Here's a picture of a lotus flower to conjure up cool, sweet smelling thoughts. These plants are pretty outrageous. The spent seedhead looks a lot like a fancy showerhead.
