Louis loves to help and loves to be in the garden. He also loves to dress up - which is why he is wearing his dad's cut down gumboots. It was really funny watching him trying to walk around the garden in the oversized and somewhat heavy boots.
Notice the way they are on the wrong feet - making it even harder to walk properly!
We've had the hottest August day since 1911 - 28 degrees C. David is trying to water the plants but we are on such strict water restrictions that it can only be done with a bucket or watering can at the moment. It's kind of scary to think that we have water restrictions in the middle of winter. Everything looks rather dry but there are some splashes of colour around. The ranunculi are very hardy and don't need much water, thank goodness, and they provide a little bit of cheer in the garden.
It's been hard trying to post as I've been busy and Julian has been sick. He's had a bad year this year, but hopefully when summer comes he will get rid of the permanent cold he's had since the beginning of winter.
This was taken during the day but it's looking rather gloomy at the moment and they are expecting a storm to pass through soon - no rain though :( Better batten down the hatches!
Taking Stock: Early December
