26/05/2017 Extremely hot and gardening was at a minimum! A few photos around the garden.

Maximum temperature 29C, minimum 13C.  16 km/h SE wind with 22 km/h gusts.   Dry.
Car temperature was reading 34C!!
Sparrows having fun cooling down...

Hey watch out you are getting me wet as well...

Oops sorry about that.

Cherries by the thousands!

Green lizard (Lacerta viridis) on our verandah this morning...

as above...

and just before he vanished into the sage. 

We have had this clematis for 4 or 5 years and it has grown very little but at last it has flowers:-)

Love in the Mist.

Climbing rose.

Sweet William.

  1. Ohhhhh, those photos of the birds in the bird bath! Amazing photos.

    I had to call my husband in, to see them.

    Beautiful all, but the cheeky birds, are the best. :-)))))

  2. We see quote a few lizards here as well although not quite sure they are the same. For some reason, lots of times when I get into my car there will be one on my windshield. Normally, I'll gently remove it.

    Your flowers are lovely!

  3. I love your lizard photos, Diane, I wish I could reach out and pet them. :) And your bird bath photos...I don't know why, but I just love watching birds bathe. There is something soothing, enjoyable and refreshing about it, and I never tire of your posts and photos. Thank you so much for sharing.

  6. Those birds look to be having fun. Your flowers are exquisite and the cherries look ripe, ready and delicious. Met a couple from France today and although I murdered pronouncing Charente they knew where it is.

    1. Ha ha that American accent but they at least understood you! My SA accent floors the French and even when I am saying something , that sounds to me exactly the same as the way they say it, they still do not understand me. Nigel's English accent does not seem to be so bad, but he also has a better French pronunciation.
      The birds are so funny on these warmer days having a good splash around, if only I had the time to watch longer. Keep well Diane

  7. What sweet sparrows. The green lizard is very handsome. We have a similar looking browny/grey family of lizards living among the catmint.
