A rainfed ricefield with rattoon crops hoping to get second harvest from the same plants suffer extreme paddy cracks. I hope the rains will still be able to save these plants. This is a shot in Majayjay, Laguna.
My mother's roses dry early because of too much heat. The petals wilt its edges before being able to expand. That is because the soft and thin petals transpire so fast and cannot tolerate the high temperatures.
Kalanchoe being a succulent have more water reserves in its system, so was able to produce flowers. But the leaves turn yellowish-brown due to extreme heat and sunlight.
Asparagus ferns really cannot tolerate the conditions, the leaves totally died.
These native ferns are suffering with the heat too, but their rhizomes and root systems will be able to wait for the rains, when they eventually resume their green lives.
