|22.6 degrees Celsius in the shade!!|
|And see that? 33.1 deg Celsius in the sunshine|
|To prove it's not summer, you can see the magnolia is leafless. But look at that very blue sunny sky!|
|The fairy rose is still flowering|
|And the lemon grass is still growing. I decided not to torture UK readers in the height of the northern summer with photos of the flourishing parsley and rhubarb and alstromerias ...or the flowering tree fuschia ... Kind and merciful, eh?|
But wait, it's now 6am Wednesday morning, it's cloudy and 10 degrees C, no wind, no rain - what southerly, I ask! Winter, what winter?
