Very hot today so no complaints from molly when I gave her a wash – a good way to cool down when you can’t take off your coat. Although everything cooled quickly late afternoon when a southerly passed through – and the temperature dropped from 28 to 15.

This is a unusual angle for a photo but I like the way it shows her curly wet coat ………….. she was mesmerised by the bees in the lavender, but fortunately was too slow to catch one.
