Today's a public holiday here in Germany, so you're not getting a proper blog post - just garden pictures instead:
and the Ecuador Purple Chili is doing its thing, too.
It's hot outside, by the way... and the sun is shining like there's no tomorrow. Once it has cooled off a little, I have gardening work to look forward to, but for now? It's time to relax, and have a coffee, and some strawberries, and a nice quiet afternoon.
