Opening the door to go into the garden, at the moment, feels very much like when you open the door of the oven when you’re baking bread!!! very hot indeed. Our forecast tells me that this week we have cyclones arriving from Africa and that temperatures in my part of Italy will most likely be in the range of 41-43°C. This is hotter than I have ever known since we arrived in late August 2003 (which had itself been a record breaking year for high temperatures. For this reason I should have photographed my view early this morning; instead I ventured out at 5 pm. Where my toes touched the gravel through my sandals they felt as if they were being burnt.
When I came home after a few days away I saw that the thermometer in the greenhouse had registered 46°C – it is a no go area at the moment.
