Melting Flowers

How hot was it yesterday? Apparently  hot enough to melt these tiny pink flowers in one of my front planters. (they really are a pale pink - this was taking early this morning in low light)

Yesterday morning I noticed the first blooms on the plant. Late afternoon I noticed the blooms were gone and thought something had nipped them off. I looked closer and no, they had melted.

The melting created this cool bright purple droplet of water though!

I live in Minnesota. We're not supposed to have melting flowers.
