Lately in Victoria we, and especially our gardens, have been suffering from the heat. We have had a long stretch of hot days and frankly we are sick of it!
The last few days have seen February set a heat record in Melbourne for the most days over 30-degrees (86°F) in the month. Apparently the average is about seven days above 30° in the month but until today we were up to about 14. Blah.
Last night a change was forecast but we failed to get too excited as we have been let down a few too many times in the past. The sky might darken and the thunder rolls but the humidity rises instead of the rain falling. Last night though it did actually cool down, and this morning I woke to the sounds of falling rain. Real rain! What a relief!
I think you can imagine which side of this 1910 cartoon my garden and I fall on
