Summer has arrived with a Bang! Today we reached 26C which is about 78F but the forecast is for increasingly warm days and Sunday we are told we may reach mid thirties or over 90F. Too warm too suddenly. I noticed many of my new perennials wilting this afternoon so although watering in the middle of the day is not a great idea I did give them a little drink.
This morning I tried to turn the kitchen lights out then I realized they weren't on, it was sunshine that was flooding the room!!
A local Plant shop is closing down and everything is half price so of course I had to go buy something. I wanted some kind of fern that would flourish in the shade on the front landing. We went to look and found lovely little Japanese Painted ferns that looked very cute. Brought them home only to read ALL the info on the tag. Hmmm. They grow 3' tall. They would completely hide the fountain by the front door. Hopefully it takes them a few years to reach their full height.
Hopefully you're enjoying lovely summer weather too.
