Whilst most of Europe has been sweating in a heatwave with record highs, we here have been “enjoying” a period of heavy rains. Although we do need those rains it is rather nice to welcome back this Thursday the summer sun. Nice top get out into the garden to see how our flowers are surviving….and it is good to report that they seem for the most part to come through unscathed….. the sun has also been a welcome friend for the ‘Painted Lady’ butterflies. It has not been a good year so far for Butterflies so it was great to see a few visiting the flower borders.
