暑い Hot!!

毎日37度が続く。最低気温も25度以上。夜中でも廊下に出ると風呂場に入ったような熱と湿度。凄いぜ〜
冷房の中ばかりでもいかんので,庭に出てみた。
High of 37 Celcius continues every day.  Low is higher than 25.  It is hot and humd like in a bathroom to walk out into stairway even in the mid-night.  Unbelievable...
This afternoon thinking it's not good to stay too long in a air-conditioned room, I walked in our garden.   

今年唯一の胡桃の実は着実に成長中
Only one walnut in this year keeps on growing.
アガベは我が世の「夏」と張り切っている。手前の小さい方は今年から地植えにした物だ。
Agaves are enjoying their summer.  The smaller in front is the one I planted on the ground this past spring.
ガジュマルも亜熱帯生まれだから水もたまにしかあげなくても平気。隣のセダムのほうが疲れ気味だ
Indian laurel is from semi-tropical, and fine without much water.  A sedum next to it, that is supposed to like heat, looks a little tired.
コウモリランは水あげないといけないが,暑さは大好きのようだ。もう鉢から溢れてきている。来年は植え替えが必要かな
A stag-horn fern needs water, but likes hot season.  It grew over the pot.  I will need to re-plant next year, probably.

セミは毎年酷く,今年も朝6時からジージー,シャーシャー,鳴いて,寝ていられない。
 ここから出てきたのか。冬虫夏草の胞子でもばら撒きたいところだ
Every year buzz of cicadas is terribly wild.  We cannot sleep when they starts crying "Gee, gee, Shah, shah" from around six in the morning.
Looks like one of them came from this hole.  I really hope to spray spore of Cordyceps Sinensis.
流石に暑さでかなり参っているようだが,バラがまた咲き出した。写真に撮ってみたら左端にチョッキリ発見 (笑)
Thought tired from hot weather, a rose started to bloom.  Weevil was included in the picture without my notice.  ;-(


月下美人も蕾を付けたが,かなり傷んでいる。咲くだろうか?
Queen of the night has a bud, but fairly damaged.  I wonder if it will bloom?

疲れ気味のセミは,樹の根元の木陰で「ジジッ,ジジッ」と独り言のように鳴いている。
Tired cicada is murmuring at the base of a wood in the shade.

去年煮えてしまったセンペルの生き残りはなんとか命を繋いでいる。今年は庭中で一番涼しそうな玄関前の日陰に置いて,水も控えめにしている。
Sempervivum was boiled last year, but this year they are still surviving.  I placed them at the coolest place in our garden that is in the shade in front of the entrance.  Also, I give water very sparingly.

蝶々もボロボロ・・・
Beaten up butterfly.

あのうるさかったクマゼミもこうなると哀れに思える
That once noisy and annoying cicada looks piteous after this.


羽化の瞬間だった筈だが,そのまま命尽きたようだ。やっとこれからという時にねぇ。これも暑過ぎのせいか。南無
It should have been an instance of eclosion, but passed away during that.  It should have been a time to fly at last.  Is this because of unusual hotness?  Namaste...
