It's been so hot lately that I decided to look back half a year to the flipside of our weather cycle. Back then I doubt I could have imagined the surprising forearm perspiration (when I'm just typing) of now. Now at least I have images to remind me of what it was like back then, of crunching through that weirdly punctated surface layer into the many layers of snow below. But I can't truly feel the cold.
A second point (the real point) of this post is to direct you to the flipside of the planet (as if Earth were flat with a hole in the centre), to Chennai, India, where the latest edition of Festival of the Trees is being hosted on Trees, Plants and more. Learn about trees in fruit and more. It's tropical, it's tasty, it's hot.
