I wrote no posts last week as we were away in Canberra to meet up with our nephew and to visit our son and daughter. We encountered hot weather while we were there but apparently it was even hotter here in Metung. On one day this was the maximum thermometer reading, Off the scale. I guess about 52 degrees.
The result of this scorching day was evident in the garden when we returned home.
The lemon tree had dropped lots of fruit and leaves.The result was the same for the lime tree.The camelias were scorched.Avocado and blueberries also scorched.The lillipilli hedge suffered on all the new growth.
In the front garden we have lost a couple of fairly new proteas and it looks as though the waratah has had the biscuit. Thankfully many of our natives in the front garden have survived but are a little scorched too. Our vegetable garden looked like a disaster zone. Cucumbers and tomatoes were cooked. Let’s hope we have no more days like that again.

It has certainly been warm over the last few weeks,
We couldn’t believe how hot it was while we were in Canberra.
It was unusual. If only it had been humid. I would have been a lot happier.
That certainly was hot. Poor garden.
The garden certainly copped a pasting.
