Summer- June, July and August–It heats up in summer on Ozarkedge. The normal temperature in June is around 85, by July it hits 90,  and in August the low 90’s prevail. On any given day we can hit 100 or more. We occasionally get relief from the heat when the temps dip into the 80’s. Those are days to be celebrated. The humidity tends to be high, so the heat index often reaches above  100. July and August are particularly prone to long spells without rainfall.

Nevertheless, summer brings a beautiful bouquet on Ozarkedge. I’ve noticed that the flowering varies a lot from year to year depending on the rainfall in the hot months.
