Another hot day

The weather situation, for the last 5 days has not been lower than 45c / 113F during the day , evenings have been down to approx 37C/98.6F.
I never thought I’d be using the word HOT so often and mean it,not that I should be complaining, I am fortunately lucky enough to have air - conditioning at home and place of employment.
My veggie patch and garden are no longer here both have all shrivelled, with no rain for quite awhile and water restrictions this has effected local gardens, playgrounds, picnic areas in our council area.
We are lucky to be one of the few places that didn’t lose power (so far) and I’m pretty happy about that.
Imagine the weather being so hot that it is melting parts of the road.
All outdoor sports have been cancelled.
Local shopping centres have reduced the usage of electricity throughout the stores by turning off overhead lights in the deli , fresh fruit and veg areas .
Sorry no photo to share in this posting as I have been working most of the weekend on several swap items . Must say I am very happy with the progress .
Hope you are all having a great day and keeping safe.
Until next time ....................Cheers Marc

it is a shame to see gardens just dying.....the roses are cooking on the bushes.....instant potpouri! Keep cool over the coming week ....I have been prepping some applique blocks to stitch during the week .......first time I have felt like doing anything in this heat...must be getting used to it...!

That heat must just be absolutely draining. Although, that said, I wish we had a little of it right now! Snow, wind and more snow seems to be our forecast.

My garden will soon be a patch of dirt. Stay cool.

This weather is horrible isn't it. We are lucky we have bore water but I am still struggling to keep everything in the garden alive. Hope it doesn't go on much longer.

My gosh you are having restrictions on everything there. Hope it doesn't effect your sewing electricity time. We have a storm brewing but I suspect it will blow over. Thinking of you in this heat. Hope you don't have to hear about it for much longer.
