Its been hot lately. The grass is tinder dry and everything is crunchy underfoot. The vege patch has gone to seed and the tomato plants shrivelled because we don't seem to be able to get the drip irrigation right.
Instead of slaving over weed eradication I've been sitting under the shady trees, catching the breeze while scribbling away in my journal. The warm weather has been great, so different from the cold rainy summer we had last year.
