It’s another really hot summer here in Austria and the weather has been acting accordingly. Last week, the local steam train set light to the grass at the side of the line.
The next day, just as I’d cycled back from the library, a storm came over and boy did it hail! I could have wept when I saw my Geraniums and Petunias being shredded, but it was too dangerous to go out. They are slowly recovering now. Neighbours’ veggies were sliced to pieces. My Gooseberries have scars, so I hope I will have enough to make this year’s wine.
Now this week, it’s back to a heatwave with it up into the low 30s this week. What happened to the Lugau being the Austrian Siberia?
