.... which was so elusive this summer, has finally arrived. It's been sunshine all the way since my return last Sunday, with tempertures peaking in the mid 30s each day, and the forecast is that it will remain settled for another fortnight or so. Just my luck that I have to leave for work in the far east on Friday!
The plants along the sun deck are past their best now, but there's still a mass of colour to enjoy in the warmth of the sunshine. I'm told by local friends that this kind of weather at this season is called "Eté St. Michel "- a "Michaelmas Summer".
