Our greenhouse got to 50 degrees earlier this week and nearly fried everything in there. We've got temperature-operated automatic openers for the roof windows, but I now leave the doors open all the time. The automatic openers are great by the way, they have wax in them and as it heats up it expands and pushes the lever to open the window. So neat and simple.

Leaving the door open overnight means we get more visitors, like this elephant hawk moth. They're apparently quite common but I've never seen one before, and they're incredibly important pollinators, so very glad to have it around. Look at it though, it's gorgeous. It's also huge. Looks like something prehistoric somehow.
