Still, there are other factors such as shading from trees - or not , but also reflection from white buildings, that are hyper-local.

No, I'm thinking of where Sade lives! Much farther north than either you or me.

. I haven't been in Spain, but have been in Greece (similar latitude) and summer sun is pretty intense. But true that it is likely not as rough on the orchids as my summer sun or yours.

The gulf stream keeps Europe a lot warmer than the latitude would indicate. (Hope that climate change doesn't mess THAT up...) Actually, the California current keeps my neighborhood a lot cooler than latitude would predict.

Exactly! Most people don't understand that Boston and Rome are at the same latitude!
