I have never seen one close to. Thank you fro putting this on Goy Delonix. I have kept it on my favourites.

We are actually having some summer weather here now - at last!!
Nothing like the temperatures you are getting though (thank goodness!!)
It has been 29 degrrees here today - very hot for our part of the world!
They will probably give us a hose-pipe ban soon, as we have had several days of this!!!!
If we get more than a few days no rain they call it a drought!!!!!!

Shirlwhirl:

You're welcome. I've seen on the internet that London, England had a record high temp of 88ºF (31ºC) on July 13, 2013. That temp is our normal high temp for inland San Diego. Actually, the normal inland highs range from: 88ºF (31ºC) to 92ºF (33ºC), many times it's much hotter, though.

Many trees/shrub/plants are in full bloom, now. It's been pretty consistently warm to hot and humid. The persistent monsoonal flow is responsible for the humid weather. Sometimes I feel like I'm suffocating in my house even with the many fans on 24/7. I don't want to use the A/C because my energy bills were the biggest ever, last summer.

Not sure how you would cope with our long dry season. It doesn't rain for many months. Usually no rain from April - late November. November is statically the sunniest month in San Diego...and can be very warm to hot and bone-dry.

Amazing Delonix!
It is quite unimaginable to us with our VERY VARIED and usually wet or/and cold weather!
We are still having some lovely days at the moment though, so we do appreciate it!

That's terrific you're having such nice warm weather. I know last year many people on GoY (in the UK) were complaining about all the rain and cool weather.

I know it must be difficult to comprehend the weather here. Many people (in the UK) can't believe me when we have high temps around 88ºF (31ºC) or even higher in the middle of January.
