We have shade!

Day four and we have the plywood up. All that is left is the tin! It is so nice to be sitting in our kitchen and have shade not direct sun light.
Its so hot we have decided to wait to put our second coat of stain on the wood it just dries so fast it hard to get it looking good.
Flooring we still don't know but not in a hurry for that either - too hot!
And mom Brandon said he want some hanging plant so can you hurry home so we can go shopping?????

VINES FOR HOT CLIMATES:
Wisteria (Wisteria floribunda) is long-lived and produces impressive amounts of blooms in lilac, white, blue, and lavender-pink in summer.

MY FAVORITE:
Bougainvillea grows beautifully in the warm-winter areas providing summer-long brilliant color in reds, pinks, golds and oranges.

The Pink Trumpet Vine (Podranea ricasoliana) is a South African native that loves the sun and heat.

The Trumpet Creeper (Campsis radicans) from the eastern U.S. is a self-attaching vine with bright yellow and orange blossoms. This vine can grow as much 40 feet in one year!

Hall's Honeysuckle (Loncera japponica) is another vine with trumpet shaped flowers that does very well in the desert.

Clematis. With proper care the fast-growing Clematis will grow in a hot, dry climate. Plant it by a trellis in a sheltered corner and keep the roots cool.
