Bloomin' October Heatwave

So this crazy heat wave during October in London has come and gone with a blink of an eye. Fingers crossed we get another one before the year is out (I am trying to ignore the global warning issues for this moment). All the John Kettley and Michael Fish successors are hinting at it.

The heat and lashings of sun had actually caused my orchard plant to flower - first time in two and a half years. How gorgeous are they?

This weather has also made me discover Pink Lemonade from Marks & Spencers. I am addicted to the stuff and it looks very pretty too.
There is something about the sun that makes people happier and fluffier and nicer. For me, summer of 2011 was that heatwave in October.


  1. I wish my blooming (!) orchid would flower. Damned thing just sits in my bathroom for years and years, and never ever blooms. It keeps growing weird tendril things, but that's it. It had beautiful flowers when it was given to me, they died and that was it. I've fed it, given it all it needs but nada, nothing. SO ungrateful!

  2. Lol, they are stubborn. My whole team looked after it with me - we were patient and were finally rewarded lol xx
