Just the good old island climate. But it's time it stopped now.
20 th March last year - in my GH temp was high - 26.4; low - 4.2; set temp ; 22.6 and no rain
You mean it was...warm? But now you mention it, Bloke and I went to Bristol for the weekend about this time last year, to see a couple of bands (Stiff Little Fingers and Spear of Destiny double bill at the O2 if anyone's vaguely interested). We wandered back to the hotel through what felt like a balmy summer's night, picked up the bottle of champagne we had chilling in the room and wandered out again to drink it on the harbourside.
Hi , last year Feb was dry march soso April lived up to its name showers every day May 2 very hot weeks 25+ and then rain every day until today so far why can't summers be like when I was a kid
My elderly countrywoman sister in law has a theory that if February is wet, we'll have a good summer. If it is dry, the summer will be terrible. Last year's February was dry, which fits her theory. This year's February was wet - so the rest of summer will be good. Boy, do I hope she is right!
Hey figrat. Glad to know you have good musical taste. I was a bit of a punk in my youth. Last saw Stiff little fingers a few years back when Bruce Foxton was playing bass. The Clash my all time favourites, must have seen them 7 or 8 times. Good music and gardening what more good you want? [ well some booze I suppose ]
Haven't been gardening that long, anyone know what problems we'll have if we skip spring? I mean go straight from cold temperatures to steadily climbing ones, straight into summer? Holding off sowing anything yet, as I've nowhere sheltered outside to put things.
It was definatley a lot warmer last Winter and Spring than this year. I'm an optimist too, I'm hoping the late start to warmer weather means we will get a good Summer. No logic to that but here's hoping. Dont' know MMP, once we get over this cold weather I would be tempted to sow some hardy annuals
