Today was the hottest of the year so far. According to the weather station, at 5pm it was 40! It’s important to remember that the weather station thermometer is hit directly by the sun for most of the day, so it’s not really the temperature in the garden, as such. It’s actually more accurate if it’s cloudy. At the moment (11:14pm) it is 15 and a light breeze has sprung up, wafting wisteria scent through the house.
It was, indeed, quite warm today. To that end I mowed the lawn early and walked the dogs late, making sure I was in the house working on my dissertation proposal during the midday heat.
We also have an almost full moon. I just went for a wander up the back and it’s very bright and, fortunately, a lot cooler. So sleep should be easy.
Here’s what the park looked like this afternoon.
