After a cool start to the week with temperatures below 10°C last Monday, by Friday Summer was back with the temperature soaring to 24°C.

As I’m writing this I can see the mist sinking and the rain won’t be far behind. The blue poppy (Meconopsis betonicifolia) is in full flower. The indigenous flora is past peak flowering while the Himalayan plants are in full flower. The southern hemisphere plant areas are still a few weeks away from their peak flowering period.

As always, there are many interesting plants in flower.
