As usual I have more to say! Over recent weeks we have spent many lovely evenings in our Palm Springs yard. Summer here is of course HOT, with temperatures soaring above the 100s on a daily basis. Using the yard is confined to early morning breakfast and then late evening before bed, when it cools a little but not much! What could be better than a chilled margarita to finish the day. And Philip has become a skilled mixologist!
Now why suddenly the yard at night you may ask, rather than an air-conditioned lounge? Well - earlier in the summer I bought a set of solar powered garden lights, much to Philip's skepticism. 'They won't work!' But they proved to be quite powerful, the charge lasting the whole evening and half the night. Philip so liked these (instant conversion) that he went out and bought another set and eventually two more. Now whilst this is hardly a son et lumiere or a Disney light show, it does give us great pleasure, allowing us to enjoy the yard in the relative cool of the evening! Pour another margarita - cheers!
