As well as the other trees previously noted, I was shocked to realise that I hadn't recognised the large walnut tree, just outside the flat. The branches almost touch our two balconies and it stands two storeys tall. An established specimen, it looked nothing like the ones we have at home: true, there were a couple of walnuts clinging to the branches, now that I looked more closely, but the leaves were what was different. They were burnt.
I was told recently that it has rained twice since March, and one of those times was a heavy downpour for fifteen minutes.
The days are still hot with clear blue skies, even though this is the rainy season.
