The rhythm of summer has begun.
It is hot, although this year there is more of a breeze in the garden.
We all have our habits. We take our morning coffee in the front garden but soon it will be too hot for that and we will shift to the cool of the trees in the back garden.
The shade of a parasol is getting insufficient to keep the heat of the sun at bay on the patio.
In addition we have to do our “frog check” each time we open the parasol.
He is not easy to dislodge.
The parasol has to be removed and the frog shaken on to the lemon tree close-by in a pot. This is a secondary favourite haunt so he will hop off easily.
This is a closer view for those of you who cannot see him in the photo above.
In fact, it is much easier to take our coffee in the back garden now.
