Greeting loyal readers and fellow maremmas. It is definitely getting hotter and hotter here in the sunny Mangamahu valley. Mummy and daddy were talking about how much warmer it is this November compared to previous Novembers. Mummy says that if this hot, sunny weather continues, we might have drought conditions earlier than last year. Me and Nellie hope not. We do not like it to be too hot. Thankfully, mummy looked at this place called the “Met service” and she says that rain is on the way. She is happy about that because it releases her from the tyranny of watering the garden.
