I didn't like yesterday so I didn't blog

it was HOT and dusty and I had to water the garden more then once to keep it cool.
But the fun thing about blogs you can look back to what happened last year, on the same date as yesterday it was HOT.
In the night it must have rained and this morning the air is fresh and everything looks a lot better.

A photo everyday   from my back door looking west.

 I love these fluffy clouds.
 Maybe I should of thinned out the tomatoes.
 I love the colour of these cauliflowers and the name"Chedder cheese"
 And baby clementines are so cute
 And also the promise of Chamagne  can you tell I don't like it when its HOT
And I just saw that this is 400th post.

Garden photos, some reasons why I spend less time on the computer.


Mango tree is in bloom


 Pea pods are drying out ready to be collected

 Sweet peas are growing so fast

 The sage is in flower

 the nasturtium are having a carnival

 and everywhere are the pink stocks

 Just with all the citrus blossom I would stay out in the garden Heaven.

 and all the new flowers starting to bloom

 and the citrus blossom

 soon there will be champagne in our house.

and the blossom is intoxicating
I love this video it was sent to me by my Mum and I thought I would share it with you.
