Hasn't it been hot lately? Gardening in the sun can be lovely but it can also be exhausting. You must remember to put on your sun cream, and don't overdo it; you don't want heat stroke!

Hasn't it been hot lately? Gardening in the sun can be lovely but it can also be exhausting. You must remember to put on your sun cream, and don't overdo it; you don't want heat stroke!

Drinking plenty of liquids is very important in hot weather, especially if you're outside, so keep a pitcher of something cold to drink in your fridge. You're more likely to remember to keep drinking it if it's something really delicious, so why not try this great recipe for the ultimate refreshing water with cucumber, lemon and mint.  It's ever so simple to make.

Fill your pitcher with three litres of water. Slice a couple of lemons thinly and add the slices to the pitcher. Limes work well too. Slice a small cucumber thinly then add these slices to your pitcher too. Pick around ten mint leaves from your garden, give them a rinse and pop them in as well. Cover the top of the pitcher and put it in the fridge for a minimum of four hours. The longer you leave it the stronger it will taste. It will be fine left overnight. Then simply pour and serve with ice. Gorgeous!
