First heat wave

In the last few days we have had our first heat wave of the year. The temperatures during the day went up to 30 degrees C (82 degrees F). This is the hottest April temperatures in 100 years and there were even reports of italians swimming in the sea atĀ Torrette.

However, the next few days should see the return to seasonal norms and even some more rain.

In the garden a few days of warm weather means the clay soil is already beginning to crack on the surface. However, it remains damp underneath and everything is shooting up. The daffodils are finished, the tulips are in their prime and most things, including the grasses that Bill planted last year, seem to have survived the winter.
