    In French Catalonia, 20 minutes from Perpignan which, yesterday broke its own weather record with 42.4°

    We only got 37.7° where we are. What a swizz!

    But still hotter than beautiful #Estepona, where next-door toddler who calls me "abuelita" ( his own Granny lives in Argentina) has told me via WhatsApp that he's watering my plant pots for me.

    Best wishes.

    They’d like that, lazy beasts, they were in their harnesses as we were camping and slight design flaw greyhound heads are the same size as their neck. he’s the most agile of the bunch but the lurcher (ginger and white ) only has one front leg hence wearing his harness side saddle

    West Yorkshire has been hot today but this evening we have cloud and I thought the threat of rain earlier and there is a most pleasant cool breeze. Truly lovely. Has anyone else noticed how tall the flowers have grown this year? I've never seen antirrhinums, foxgloves, delphiniums, poppies etc etc so very tall - and I have lived in our home for 32 years and never seen roses so very big ever. It's like a tropical paradise thanks to the heavy rain and the warm sunshine. A bit too hot for me today - about 26 I think.

    Lovely in the sea today. Lurchers and daughter enjoying the cool water.

    Cold beer, new potatoes and salad off the allotment and then Fontaines D.C. Goat Girl, and some other stuff at Glastonbury.

    Even by the sea, it's still stifling at 11:30 p.m.

    Well get some ruddy clothes back on - it's Sunday. You don't want to put the neighbours off their psalms. :)

    Yes. Now that you mention it i was looking at the foxgloves that have self seeded in one part of my garden - and they are tall this year, or maybe i have shrunk since last year. I really like the white ones.

    Tall summer plants are a sign that the coming winter will be a bad one. When the plants are low then the winter will be mild - nature provides seeds, nuts, fruit etc for the animals, birds and insects to feed on over winter so if food sources grow low to or on the ground then there will not be wet, frost or snow cover. If all the plants that provide food sources are higher up then it implies that there will be ground wet, frost and snow. Trust nature - it’s telling us it’s going to be a cold winter.

    Have a look in your area - how high are the blackberry flowers, other types of berries and seeds growing. Where I am everything is high up - a good metre off the ground.

    You'd be better off divining the weather to come from the entrails of slaughtered goats. It is about as accurate. The tall growth of the vegetation is simply due to all the heavy rain we had followed by periods of sunshine, longer days, and warmer temperatures. The saturated soil allows the plants to maximise photosynthesis drawing up water at maximum rate and producing sugars then other products as fast as they can. It has nothing to do with the future, as no plant can dinine the future, they are just working at optimum currently. Do you have any other old wives tales to impart?
