After a couple of weeks on unseasonably cool weather (see comment below *) we have returned to a period of way too hot weather. One goes out in the early morning to weed and water and then are forced to retire to the shade and the a/c … meanwhile the wildlife have to suffer what the gods are throwing at them. Here are a couple of unhappy birds.
[* Comment on the heat: there was an article in yesterday’s paper saying that in parts of the country the tourism trade is suffering this year as we have been having ‘cool” weather. It seems that for people to hop in their cars and go and stay in or just visit a tourist hotspot then the daytime temperatures need to be in excess of 30degC. God forbid – 22-25C is just fine.]
