The wind has dropped, it is just the merest of breezes. The sun is hot in an almost cloudless sky. I am making the most of it and researching whilst sat in the warmth liberally doused in Factor 50 and with a hat firmly perched on my head.
My roses are plentiful, and the lemons are turning from green to the palest of yellows. The frogs are singing in the stream and the birds are busy nesting. It is that peaceful, comfortable time before the serious heat.
