We had a lovely summer and it isn't quite over yet, the weather is still nice, not as hot but nice. We didn't have to cut the grass for weeks, that was a bonus. We got invaded by ants in the kitchen and wasps. There was a lot more wasps than usual.
Farmer kept checking his crops, I don't know how they survived as he doesn't have irrigation, they did though, didn't grow much without rain but they made it.
Roll on next summer, I hate the winter, colds, flu etc... Summer went to quick. Still getting my vitamin d from the sun. The blackberry bushes have produced thousands of them this year, I'm going to cut them back this year. My ancient plum tree that produces miniature plums has been pecked bare of plums by pigeons. Those pigeons don't give my miniature plums a chance. The tree is getting huge and is a magnet for pigeons. People don't seem to shoot pigeons anymore as the cartridge cost more than they can get for the birds. We have massive pigeon flocks and they really are a nuscience.
