Its been warm for the last few weeks which is a blessing after the abysmal summer we had last year. I know heat here is probably cool to many who live further south and are experiencing heat waves with temperatures over 100 degrees. Here the temperatures are moderate, usually not getting up to more than low 80s at most. The benefit and curse of living on an island.
And of course its all relative to what you're used to.
Sunday afternoon was hot in sun and in the shade beautifully cool. 27.8C = 82.4F For me, a fabulous temperature to retreat to the gazebo or the shade of the trees in the garden. This is the view looking towards the meadow at the back of the house. The sun later in the afternoon was brilliant, bleaching out colour in contrast to the shade of the trees.

And, I've noted that for some peculiar reason, all the content from the Followers gadget on this blog has disappeared. Poof! The piece is still there, but no names and I'm not sure why. I shall have to investigate further. Hmmm...
