Summer seems to be back on again. It was on from Easter and a week after, then off again (my aunt emailed me pictures of snow only a few days ago, she lives closer to the east coast but roughly the same latitude); but this afternoon I was glad to have my new parasols up on the balcony! My old ones were all different from each other; yesterday I bought three new ones all of the same kind, and besides looking neater I hope they will give me as well as my plants better protection from the afternoon heat on really sunny days.
I also got some new plants today.
And my clematis survived the harsh winter and is now in bloom.
