Today it is hot, very hot! The temperatures have changed from cool spring to hot summer almost overnight. I keep a record of the temperatures in the greenhouse than this week so far the maximum for all three days has been over 40° C, that’s over 100° F.
The slope has only changed a little from last week; the self-seeded Verbascums are beginning to open their flowers and it seems there are new plants of Eschscholzia californica which are flowering; the older plants are making seed.
You can almost feel the heat in this image!
In the above the silver leaved shrub is Buddleia ‘Silver Anniversary’ which I moved last autumn from the large island, you can read why I moved it here.
