We’ve had a beautiful hot week and weekend here, every day in the upper 70s, cloudless sky. We’re spending a lot of time in the garden because the kids are really enjoying it, and I’m starting to feel like we can finally put some energy into it. Plus we have gardeners to do the dirty work, so we just have to do the fun stuff: buy and plant new plants! We have some areas that still need a lot of work (and a lot of new plants – some stuff just isn’t surviving the draught and us cutting our water bill tenfold). Forward and onward!
