Hot one

It's going to be a hot one today, for us anyway.
Supposed to be 101, according to Wunderground, and we're always slightly more extreme right here....their 20 below is our 30 below on the front porch.

There's a heat haze already, looking to the east, I can barely see the bluffs.
We watered everything last night, so this should be a day of growth. The cilantro is almost done blooming, with green seeds everywhere. I walked along the sidewalk and I could smell it, aromatic in the sun. After pacing it off, I discovered I have approximately a 3 x 30 ft patch of it. From one small row last year. I suspect it has potential to be invasive, but I'll take cilantro over dandelions and prickly lettuce any day!
