3 days of 41C with humidity under 5%-climate change is wearing me down. dug split and planted a couple of hundred iris and am turning out a bed that is infested with ribbon wire grass-all work stops at about 11 am-still a few good things in the garden and new veg garden is growing three or four inches a day-yay.

 phygelius aequalis and a couple of eryngiums
