Finally Summer arrived over here, it is hot ! 28 C°, I know some of you will have a good laugh cos 28 C° is normal or even on the cool side for you, but for us it is baking hot ! Most of my plants are loving it and they are thriving. The Summer holidays have started for the schoolkids and for a large part of the working population so they are all very happy. Life is so different now, we can eat outside morning, noon and evening and we can even have a nightcap on the terrace before we go to sleep. Now I would love to have a swimming pool in the garden but for the short period we can swim outside during Summer it is really not worth having a swimming pool, unless you have loads of space. Ofcourse I can dive into our pond but I don’t want to scare our fish !
Last week was crazy as I had 2 sick children to care for and a sick husband (he counts for 10) so I didn’t get a chance to work in the garden. I did manage to take a few pictures for you.
