Feb 8th

Last week south of Sydney they had a heat wave, today it arrived here. Have the physical strength of melted wax. Spent the day languidly moving from task to task. Several times I donned a minimum amount of clothing to venture outside and mist the budgies. Immediately stripping off again once inside.

Survival is the name of the game today, I wonder how long we are in for.

I do not know the name of this lovely rose, I bought it bare rooted and labelled 'Iceberg', which clearly, it is not. Ah well, shes pretty nonetheless.

Sounds nasty down there with all that heat. It's good you have the option to stay inside most of the time.
Beautiful rose too!

Here's a pic about the heat it's safe, I promise.

Your photos are beautiful. It makes me crave for spring (I'm in Ohio, USA). I hope it cools down quickly for you!

Lavender, I think your heat wave is the same as ours here except we escape to the mall or stay at home in air-conditioning. Sometimes it is so hot that we can't swim in the pool because it's like being parboiled.

Thank you for the sweet comment on my blog. I would love to take care of you if I had the chance. I like acting as a friend's private nurse sometimes.

I was bad over the weekend.... dragged out the portable air conditioner.... and sat in front of the TV.
