The weather here is changing fast – the days are pleasantly warm and the nights are still cool enough to ensure that the fiery heat of the day is kept at bay for a little while longer. We have not seen rain in over 2 and a half weeks and probably will not see grey clouds on our horizon for another 3 months or so. All the wild plants that, up to a few weeks ago delighted us with their vibrant and pretty flowers, are turning golden and brown and will soon wither and die.
The poppies are still around though, nodding their sleepy heads on their slim stalks at the slightest breeze. But soon, they too will succumb to the unrelenting heat. Such is the cycle of nature …
With family visiting, we are spending most of our days planning outings and BBQs, visiting the little nooks and crannies on this little island that are off the beaten track, having fun and making memories along the way.
Meanwhile the sea’s call is getting louder and I am yearning for my first swim …Friday’s Fun Finds for this week.
