At last, the weather has broken and it's cooler.
I just hope it lasts a while.

I picked these flowers whilst out on our walk yesterday morning.

There's a field of these flowers
in amongst the vineyards.




Not sure about the purple one,

Cut flowers.
Simple pleasures.

A Hot Weekend

It seems to be getting hotter.
We've had beautiful weather here on the Mosel for weeks now.
Spring was wet here, unusually,
so it was lovely when summer arrived.
But now,
the heat continues with no let up.
I don't know how people mange to cycle in the middle of the day
when it's so hot.


It's bad enough taking the dogs for a walk in the shade.
In fact Arthur looked as though he didn't want to go for a walk
yesterday afternoon.
So I walked back to the van with him and Paddy,
while Mike continued with Jess, Indie and Danny.
Paddy's watching them go here.

They got a frozen fish finger each when they got back home.

Paddy's looking for somewhere to eat his.

This next photo shows Jess and Paddy on tonight's walk
when it's cooler.
But they still look hot.

Paddy and Arthur spend most of the day in the cellar where it's cool.

At least the flowers are enjoying the long warm days.

I hope you are too.
