Now you know the perils of wearing polyester fleeces in hot weather. It may wick the perspiration away from the skin; but it doesn’t half make you smell.
Sorry to be so graphic but I wore too many layers early this morning and then forgot to shed them as the temperature rose.
I blame the obsessive need to get my bulbs in the ground while the soil is moist.
And as I was marching back up with my empty bucket, fork and trowell I was marvelling at the shimmering heat and just how much I reek.
So it’s a lunchtime change of clothes, nosh, and then I need to weed the herb garden area before I can get the other alliums into the ground. I will be wearing a t shirt and my largest sunhat.
