Here’s looking at you……
It’s hot here, summer has hit with a vengeance. Yesterday mid afternoon the temperature on the back verandah, in the shade, was 48C. Today it’s expected to get as hot. This time I may remember to take a photo of it. As it is cooler under the verandah than out in the sun, one can only imagine what the temperature may be. My thermometer doesn’t go higher than 50C……..
Anyway, yesterday morning while attending to my garden, I found a praying mantis, quite a large one, and later on in the day found a smaller one on the geraniums. The story on the big one will have to wait – it’s simply too hot in my computer room! Now I’m off for a cooling drink…….
