It is still hot. The roses which looked so beautiful are struggling. I water them, but the blooms are a little raggedy around the edges. The basil plant which sits on the windowsill, only getting sun for part of the day, is drinking water at a rate of knots. It wilts, but withing five minutes of adding water it is all perky again.
I wish the same could be said of me!

Geckos and lizards are in abundance. I don't mind them at all. I am waiting for the chameleon to make his appearance. They move so slowly, until you pick them up, then at an amazing turn of speed they are up your arm. It's like living in a mini-dinosaur world.

Spot the Gecko! He is doing his best to blend in.
