The heat rises and I find it very wearing. It seems churlish to complain but although it is lovely to see the sun in June I find it difficult to find enough energy to even water my pansies and ferns in their pots.
Sleeping (even 'au naturelle' (not a pretty sight I assure you)) under just one sheet is hard so that energy is lacking during the day anyway.
This morning there is heavy cloud here in the east of the UK and also thick mist. There is also a slight breeze blowing - but it is still very hot.
'Strugglers' this morning followed (hopefully) by a lunch out if anyone fancies it in this hot weather.
Yesterday I made my own lunch at home - various green veg stir-fried with a few spring onions and then topped with pineapple chunks chopped into small pieces and sprinkled with a few chilli flakes.
I topped this with a few slices of grilled streaky bacon which I needed to use from the fridge and the result was surprisingly good. Strawberries for afters - hasn't it been a wonderful year for them?
Today - June 20th - would have been the farmer's 74th birthday. Happy birthday my dear one, wherever you are - I think about you all the time and remember the happy times we had together.
