We seem to be having a bit of heat wave here, way too hot for me! I’ve never enjoyed really hot weather. I didn’t sleep at all last night, was still up at 5.30 am. I just did some reading most of the night and napped through much of the morning.
I haven’t felt like doing much these last few days; no gardening, no editing… so nothing much to post I’m afraid! I’ve been lazy.
I have been sitting outside some of the time, watching the birds. It’s so hot the bird baths keep drying up! So I’m checking them often. Been seeing bees and butterflies visiting the flowers as well; it’s always gratifying to see 🙂
I’m also thinking ahead to what I’d like to do in the garden this autumn. I’m thinking of trying straw mulch, in addition to my usual leaves, chippings, and compost. If you’d tried it, I’d love to hear how it worked for you.
We have plenty of jobs still to do in the meantime though.. when it cools down a bit!
I wish we had a paddling pool… I could use one right now 😉
I will get around to editing more photos and researching more posts soon.
