Drought is the name for these months. The grass was brown and the leaves of the oak trees completely browned by the end of August. The days towards to end of August were particularly hot getting up to 37 degrees on two days.
Our rain water cistern of 42 cubic metres was two thirds empty by the end of August. It was difficult keeping the vegetable watered.
An Asian wasp - Sceliphron curvatum was found in the house. It makes nests like pots out of clay and is spreading throughout France having been seen first some years ago in Austria. The more disastrous Asian Hornet was also seen feeding on our grapes for the first time. This creature eats bees.
