The smoke from wild fires cleared a little through the day. It was enough to moderate the sun and the temperatures stayed quite cool in the morning, moving gradually from 18C to 27C and then 30C.
The two lilies in Drive and Road definately are Brunellas – the puzzle is how did they get there? Diane and I discussed squirrels as the culprits but as D pointed out, the squirrels would have eaten them. I have only once found any sign of digging in the garden and I was never sure what had been digging. The two Spruce and a Pine at the back of the family’s garden have been cut down to make way for the expanded wood workshop, they used to harbour the squirrels’ drey. I am not sure where the squirrels are living now, I don’t see them running along the fence.
