Today the temperature hit 30 degrees and forgot to stop. The sky was totally cloudless and there was not much breeze. The only good thing to be said about it was that it wasn’t humid. Still, there was a lot of water replacement going on in our house.
And outside our house to be honest. I removed another browned off conifer and carted it to the hospital up the back as well as planting a couple of astroemeria in the hot border. The astroemeria have been very successful so a couple more can only give even more colour.
Mirinda, meanwhile, having Skyped Fi (with her Big News) and Bob, set to planting up a whole load of geraniums and flowers with names I can’t remember but are pink. The latter in the big pot made vacant by the conifer.
There is still a lot of planting to be completed (by me tomorrow) as well as two more sickly conifers to be moved. The weather report is not encouraging given it will probably be hotter than today. Bastard weather.
And the rose we planted last weekend is coming along nicely. The scent is amazing.
And, for the curious: Fi’s Big News is that the family is going on a cruise in November which leaves from Southampton and heading north to Scandinavia among other places. Prior to departure, they are going to spend a week with us.
