The morning light was soft and warm. As the sun rose, the shadows slowly lengthened, and the volcanic gravel on the garden took on the colour of Cotswold stone. We have just come home from our morning walk and it is already 23°C and the sky is still streaked pink. I would guess we are in for another lovely weekend but make the most of today as it looks like temperatures are once again on the rise.
Yesterday continued with just a little cloud but mostly clear. Temperatures went from a moderate 26°C at lunch time to a scorching 32°C by mid-afternoon. There was quite a strong breeze to keep it comfortable but the sun was blindingly bright.
