I've been getting home from work and gardening till it goes dark. Wonderful!
I made blackcurrant jam at the weekend. At the moment 2 plants growing that are really attracting bees - Allium sphaerocephalon, and butterflies - Marjoram.
To keep cool, wear something wet - I wet my hat a lot when I'm gardening in hot weather.
A friend of mine, who lives in a hot country, keeps her clothes overnight in the fridge in one of those plastic bags you get for packing in a suitcase. She also takes clothes out the washing machine and puts them straight on
