Yipee, I actually sat outside, with the cat and dog, drinking a cup of tea on Saturday morning, left the back door open and the aircon off. It lasted till 9am, it got too hot and we all moved back indoors.
Summer ruined my garden, it didn't help I was away for 7 weeks and I seriously doubt my husband watered outside when it was 50c.
I managed an evening last week in the garden after sunset and did a little bit of tidying up.
While I was away the neighbours erected a fence.
This meant cutting the rope supporting the plant and leaving me to clean the mess.
I hacked the plant back and retied it to the wall, it seems to be doing ok.
I tried tying this one up also, but it's rather large, heavy and prickly, so it's being propped up with a broom for now and probably forever more.
There has been some surprising growth in places, this triffid style plant has just kept on growing.
As have the weeds and the basil, which is woody and gone to seed now.
The weeds of course are growing strong.
And the lawn is thriving.
I've no idea what this is, but I think it's going to be a tree.
The sun has ruined the outdoor cushions, I put most of them away but forgot the loungers.
I can't wait to unveil this set where I can sit and have tea and breakfast in the morning.
