It was hot in Italy while we were in the UK for a week, lucky me!
This week the temperatures are actually still lower than would be expected but the weather always changes at the end of August although usually becomes summerlike again after mid-September. This year may of course be different.
What I noticed most was that the evenings have become decidedly shorter; where before going to England dinner was usually on the terrace without the need for artificial light until almost the end of the meal, this week the light has been required from the beginning.
The slope didn’t suffer as much as the rest of the garden from the hot days last week.
Chloris at The Blooming garden mentioned that her Solanum is perfumed, I had never been aware of any perfume from mine but I plucked some flowers to put to my nose to check – nothing! Either mine is a different variety or it is a perfume not perceptible to me.
Have you noticed the evenings getting shorter? or longer of course if you’re in the Southern Hemisphere?
A quick reminder that it is Garden Bloggers Foliage Day tomorrow, I would be so pleased if you join in, just post and leave a link with a comment on my post.
