I guess you can't have hot weather without cold air rushing in to fill the void and the wild swings of weather around the world suggest that calm and settled weather may be taking a holiday elsewhere in the Universe. At least we can change our clothes to suit the conditions but spare a thought for our flora and fauna that could be in dire straits if climate change happens too quickly for them to adjust.
The early morning eastern sky had a super-bright star this week and with the help of Google I found that it was probably Venus. My camera is a lovely wee Sony and zooming isn't one of its strengths so I was thrilled to capture this handheld shot when it was still quite dark.

My guess of Venus is what you are
The grass around the house has been cut for a third time and hopefully I've caught most of the dandelions and Lotus major before they've seeded. My Stihl scrub-bar went like a charm but I need to sharpen the blade before I use it again. Just as well there's plenty of YouTube videos to watch on the subject - I don't learn that well from the instruction sheet!
The temperature has dropped to 9°C; bed and an extra blanket here I come!
