It's so hot in Aberfoyle


By Scotkat


No where to get shade at the cottage .

Had to come indoors may I say it to cool down

And to get hotter for the rest of the of the week.

Lots of photos to share when we get home

Heard the woodpecker today but could not see it.

So hot in Aberfoyle!! Oh dear, Oh dear. I was hoping to move to Scotland to avoid the London heat. I must look elsewhere. May be Anchorage in Alaska.

But Scotland is such a hidden gem of Beauty.

It's not as hot as this all the time Costa.

Our 'hot' isn't quite the same as England's hot either is it Kath. It's been 'hot' here today too, but probably less than 25C.

'Little sun worshipper me' has even been in the shade today and also spent a lot of the day indoors!!
What a summer so far :-))

Very hot here in Lincs but the bottom half of my garden is always shady so I can work away down there all day, I used to spend hours down there in my childminding days with the grandchildren, the poor dogs don't know what to do with themselves either.......

It's getting pretty hot down here in West East Anglia as well! Yesterday we had at least 26ºC when we were walking around Cambridge, lots of sun & few clouds! We spent a good deal of our time in the air-conditioned shops!

At home today it's shaping up to be an even hotter day - we could reach 28ºC - equalling last Friday's temps here! That was our hottest day of the year so far & today it looks like being the same!

Melting it's hot near 27 deg drove to Balloch then biked to Luss for our morning coffee at waterfront.

Then biked to Rubha Mor and found a nice spot to sit and have our lunch overlooking Ben Lomand

Cycled a total of 32 miles today.

W ell done that is quite an achievement even on a cool day let alone in the heat of today! It must have looked beautiful by the loch in the shade of a tree.

Hubby and son biked 54 miles today

My little sunshade parasol did not give enough shade to easily cover my two comfortable garden armchairs, when my son said he would bring a picnic, (I think the sun has gone to my head) I have ordered a cantilevered parasol, for my tiny garden. I think I can j u s t a b o u t find enough space for it's 2.5 metre canopy..! this is madness, I know, but it will ensure plenty of shade when my two girls come to see my on the weekends, as well. I am now waiting for its arrival...don't know if I will be able to manage the setting up on my own, may have to wait for help! I do think the sun has had a lot to do with my impulsive buy, its definitely had some bearing on it. I am now enthusiastically studying every video I can showing how to set it up!!!ha ha ha.
