Found this last week (snap, Yolanda!) since when, the rain and wind have stopped. Yes, it really did register 32C, but ambient temperature about 28C .....
Becky has set up a competition about tea. Now, while I don't want to enter, I couldn't resist sharing this little ode....
ODE TO TEA, Source unknown.
A little cup of friendship
With a bag of tea
When you drink this
Think of love from me.
I was lucky enough to win a gardening book from Becky some time ago.
We had 3 days solid rain last week so the new plants are in the ground and I'm talking to them daily to jolly them along.
These are the little blighters that Yin and Yang chase around the garden. They are enormous beige grasshoppers and dine out on all the new shoots in the citrus trees. Click on to see their exquisite patterning and strange eyes. Yes, they are procreating, so Yin and Yang had better get busy. (Photo courtesy of Yvonne, who is a great photographer).
