.... the pool temperature has climbed back above 30c for the last couple of days. Last night we had friends round for apéros, and it was a balmy night, such as you would expect in June / July, but that didn't happen this year. When we came in from the deck it was after 11p.m., it was still nearly 21c outside and the cicadas were still "singing".
The bougainvillea (above) had a very bad winter and we thought it was dead, but a new pot and fresh soil has revived it such that it's better now than it's ever been.
I found an online deal for a new fridge - it has been quite slow to arrive but it is now installed, giving us much more refrigerated space than previously.
Have you sampled any of the live recordings of choral music featured on the Moments Musicaux page of the website?
Or there's a Christmas Carol selection available here.
