Looks like summer

Today we woke at 7 am to 17 degrees, with 27 degrees predicted for this afternoon, fingers crossed that summer has arrived at long last.
Needless to say that our pool heat pump broke a couple of weeks ago, we are awaiting a part from the UK for our French pool man to fit. At least with temperatures soaring the pool will heat up on its own, so maybe I will be able to have a swim at last.
We put up our new shade sail yesterday to finish off the improvements to the terrace in the expectation of eating outdoors more often now.


The plants are also enjoying the sunshine this brugmansia is flowering happily too.
