Having shivered and grown webbed feet along with the rest of you it's now at the other extreme. Just about cool enough to go outside (6.30pm) 32.8C here today and the french beans have got sunburn But there are storms on the way.Gardening requires a lot of water - most of it in the form of perspiration.

It's really, really hot here on the South Coast but up north where some of my family live it's....raining.
Hope the storms are not too bad. We're forecasting rain for Friday when the Olympics start.A weed is a plant that has mastered every survival skill except for learning how to grow in rows

It has been really hot here in South Wales all week and it was over 27 degrees today at The Royal Welsh Show in Builth Wells. Everyone was melting and looking for shade! But we all had a fabulous day out. Forecasting cooler weather on Saturday.
Hope you don't get bad storms over there Roitelet!Time flies like an arrow, but fruit flies like bananas.

32C here- and hotter expected tomorrow.
Not got any mad dogs- but I've got my Englishman and he's been working inside the uninsulated roof all day with a very short lunch break- can't even touch the inside of the slates- says he'll take the thermometer in there tomorrow. Health and safety regs???hmmmm...good job he's his own boss!"Nicos, Queen of Gooooogle" and... GYO's own Miss Marple
