But before I carry on complaining about the hot temperatures I think I have to remember what is great about summer.
Long days, I love daylight saving we get an extra 3 hours of light at night in summer compared to winter. It always feels like you can get so much more done. Mind you the dog still seems to know that walk and food time should take place around 4-5pm regardless of light conditions.
Jumping out of bed without the need of extra clothing to keep you warm. You don't have to do the shiver while getting dressed. In fact you rather wish you could carry out the work day in bare feet and shorts.
Bare feet, swimming in cool waters, picnics without jumpers, early morning walks in the cool, cicadas, Christmas and New Year holidays, stone fruit, zucchini, chilli and basil.
Here are a few photos that made me smile and cry this summer....
|Calodendron capense I am hoping the one planted comes into flower next year|
|Chilli flowers are pretty|
|New eggplants that aren't being eaten by ladybirds|
