Oh how sad, it's because the jet stream has moved down, we're getting low pressure systems and infinitum ...

Stay cool and well hydrated Andy!

Oh how sad. Mind you these flowers are normally growing in the cool temperatures of late Spring, so the heat wave wouldn't have done it any good. It's a great photo though.
