This summer has been one of the hottest here in years. I don't function well in the heat! But, the up side of living in a hot and humid place is the gorgeous surroundings. I live in a sea of soothing greens, enhanced with joyful splashes of colour! Here is some of what's happening outside at the moment:
Day Lilies are facing my front door - and yes, they only last for a day. I have learned that the blooms are edible, so have got as far as using them to decorate stir fries and salads - but I haven't actually downed a whole one yet!
Bromeliad blooms are the new kids on the block. These pineapple relatives just arrived in the last few days.
