..... as our guests left early and I've been doing domestic duties since then. It's hot and unusually humid today - storms are forecast for later, but hopefully all three loads of washing will be dry before they arrive.
The bougainvillea is a mass of flowers at the moment - it prefers the shelter of the conservatory to outside because the night time temperatures are lower than is really ideal for it. I put it out on the sun deck earlier in the summer, but it was clearly not doing well. Three weeks in the shelter and it's like a completely different plant.
The nectarines are beginning to swell at last - the tree is only small but we've 7 or 8 fruit on it this year.
