Yep, my pool has been taking a hammering the past few days. Do a bit of yardwork, jump in the pool.

If it rains much more where I am, I'll need an ark.

What kind of yard can one have in 110 degree weather? Cactus?

Its been the best spring since I moved here, windy, windy everyday, temps between mid 70's to 92 deg

I have calloses on my hands from sailing so much. The last 2 nights we have had some major thunderstorms and rain but the garden looks lush!

Spoke to the old dear on monday she said it was bloody miserable on the bank holiday, whilst I was downing another cold one on a lake, windsurfing, fishing and jet skiing.....its a tough life!

Thought I would post some pics to let you see what can grow in temps over 108 (today). They may be a bit big, I apologize, new camera and all that.

And another, getting boring now eh? Very little water is used in my yard. One side has a drip system which is on for 10 mins a day, the other side has no water going to it. It was hard work mind putting all this stuff in. It involved a pick and shovel and a couple of bad backs, but we are pleased with the way it turned out.

Can you come and water my daff's effi?. The sun has pretty much killed everything in our yard, except for a bush and a sunflower.
