You see, it just goes to show...
Saturday was downright cold and Monday wasn't much better, with some rain for heavens sake! Tuesday started off cold and drizzly and ended up hot and sunny, but today it is Wednesday, and I think it's the hottest day we've had so far this year. (Must get an outdoor thermometer). It has been so hot that I didn't go out into the garden until 5 o'clock, and there is such a hot wind it is like being in a desert.
Because the weather was mixed, I didn't water the garden and completely forgot the pots, with the consequence that one of the lilies has suffered somewhat although the other two look OK. It's a shame because they have such a strong perfume that fills the garden in the evening.
On the bonus side, however, the gladioli seem to thrive, and finally I have some that are not orange! I love this hot pink one!
