Cloud moved in at 3pm yesterday, bringing to an end almost two days of temperatures in the mid to high twenties which, accompanied as it had been by a strong and gusty wind, was getting a bit trying.
To those of you for whom 25°C is barely warm and who are accustomed to months of hot weather, I must sound very peevish but you garden to your conditions and when the weather does quick changes it can catch out plants that haven’t had a chance to become conditioned to it. The main problem is we have so many plants in pots and one or two have suffered a bit because they got too dry. Mostly the garden is looking good, with a bit of moisture still in the ground and somewhat higher temperatures it’s flowering like mad.
So much so that rather than try and narrow the focus to six random plants I’m going to do six views. A couple of individual items can serve as featured image and footer.
The view from upstairs in the house.
I used to take the shot from upstairs every month, I must see what I have from the end of June in previous years. This year seems like a good year but usually when I look at the evidence there is less difference between seasons than I think.
One last thing before I head over to El Proppoe’s, head of the SoS cartel. Should any of you have made the mistake of thinking there was anything nice about the two cats that photobombed some of the pics, let me tell you that the dead mouse I came downstairs to this morning was the biggest I’d ever seen, so it might have been what was shrieking in unworldly fashion while I lay in bed last night. At least it was a whole mouse, not a collection of mouse components, some missing, which is more usual.
Pair of cats anyone, free to a good home?
