See what nine hours of sun can do.

Another unusually hot day (28 C in the shade) here in southern Derbyshire found us hedge trimming.

This was a chance to try out electric hedgetrimmers on all sorts of plants. Somehow this included part of a self- or bird- seeded gooseberry.

One branch bearing rather underripe fruit was felled. I rescued the goosebeerries, and put them on the garden table.

They were green at 11.00, but now have blushed on one side. The one in the centre has been turned over to show the original colour.

Imagine what the effect on human skin would be. I've been keeping out of the sun all day.
