As the wind has dropped and the temperature soared, we now enter into a heatwave.
The recovery work in the garden is under way. Clearing fallen branches, staking up plants, watering, and dead-heading were the order of the day.
Jackie staked up the nicotiana in the Palm Bed for the third time;
it can be seen through hanging baskets settled back in place,
but no longer bends across the Gazebo Path.
Standing planters have been set up again.
I have now dead-headed the phlox in the foreground of this view from the Phantom Path, but not yet cut the grass.
Fortunately most begonias did not suffer from wind burn.
This evening we dined on meaty beef burgers, crisp chips, a variety of baked beans, and lashings of fried onions, followed by zesty lemon tart and cream. Jackie drank fruit juice whilst I imbibed Moreland brewery’s Old Crafty Hen.
