Summer heatwave with the June blooms and Full Moon

June is quickly drawing to an end and London is experiencing a heatwave predicting 35 degrees Celsius for tomorrow. Could be the hottest day of the year! We enjoy a bit of breeze though and some thundery showers are expected later during the week.

Personally, I always liked summertime and the heat. My mum, who like my brother dislikes the hot weather, says me and my sister got it after my father who at 74 still enjoys sitting in the full sunshine. I remember lots of sunbathing during my teenager times. Nowadays, I mostly love summer evenings filled with scents, warmth and colours but no mosquitos please!
