We have had two days with 40+ temperatures and the garden is not happy.
Most things are limp.
I have not watered it with tap water since January 18th last year and instead have been using saved rain water, shower water and laundry water. Tomorrow I think I will call in the reserves and use some tap water. Unfortunately we are only allowed to hand water 6am - 8am, two days a week, so I will have to set the alarm. At least it wont be cold.
So what did I do to take my mind off the heat? Painted a beach scene. Still got a bit of work to do on it. Haven't painted for ages, and it shows, but nice to get going again.
