Summer

Yes, it's suddenly become summer here in Southland.  For the past 2 weeks, we've had virtually no rain (most unusual!) and temperatures often in the 20s (that's Celsius).  Today, for example, it's already 14 outside and the expected high is 25.  However, the tropical weather won't last and it will be raining by midweek.  However, the sunshine has lifted spirits and made me feel like I'm on holiday - which I am, even though I've been doing some part time work.  As soon as that runs out, which will be soon, I have lots of creative ideas that I want to pursue.

 I went to Riverton recently (the Riviera of the South), and took some macros at the beach.  This is my favourite.
 At home, I took macros of the flowers.  This is a Rhodohypoxis, a dwarf rock garden plant.
 This lavender flower and the purple one below are Lobelia.


This is a poppy - always one of my favourite flowers.


And this was how my tunnel house looked after 5 weeks - the other side hasn't been completed yet.  Already the plants have grown noticeably bigger (2 weeks have passed since I took the photo) and the lettuces are ready to eat.  I've had to jiggle my tomato flowers to pollinate them so I hope that works.
