Suddenly it's summer

Yesterday and today have been so hot - more than 34 degrees and it's only into November, not summer at all. Apparently records have been broken already - it hasn't been so hot in early November for a hundred years. Our lovely vegetable garden will suffer if this keeps up, and the flowers will wilt too. A year ago some of the rather ordinary looking cactus plants suddenly burst into lovely red and pink flowers, but they wilted within a week. This has happened once again. Several flowers emerged and then within three days they were rather sorry. Perhaps my photos of one of the wilting flowers ought to be called 'After the ball is over'.

And suddenly the bouganvillea which had no flowers two weeks ago is ablaze with small buds and flowers.
