The afternoon thunderstorms continued all last week until Sunday. This week the temperatures are rising each day and we are heading into the weekend with temperatures forecast to be about 35°C.
Again the images were taken this morning with the sun at the top of the slope creating shadows and highlighting grasses.
Verbascum caterpillars are appearing but so not seem to decimate the wild plant the way they do garden cultivars.
A few Eschscholzia continue to flower and I can see some new seed is germinating with the warm damp conditions; these may not survive if the heat wave really does arrive but there will be plenty more later from the thousands of seeds that have already been produced.
What do you have in your garden that is giving you particular pleasure today? Is your weather a heat wave or more rain than you would like?
