....Couldn't cope with those silly-hot temps dahn sarf....how on earth do you all cope? Hottest June in 40+ years down there, apparently. It's 15 degrees here, very sensible!...
See original post
The short answer M-U is that I don't really cope. Not much has been achieved here in the last week. Was all I could do to push the vac around this morning hoovering up dead insects and the like.
On the plus side I have a pot full of used wooden ice lolly sticks ready to be recycled as plant markers
Overnight lows forecast to be in the 20's here - don't expect to get much sleep.
15C is much more in my comfort zone. Day after day of drizzle or sea harr is a bit wearing (I used to live at the coast) but I'd prefer that to searing temperatures and no rain. My garden is starting to look like it does at the back end of August. Lots of crispy leaves and spent flowers.
Trevor - please, please, please - a little rain dance - pleeease.
