Dull and dry in Stockton, the troilus is blooming and the Rhododendron's too so the plants are enjoying it.Daughter in California tells me they got home from here to 89F, to hot to eat she says, can she ship some over I ask?
89F would be nice for a while.but I don,t think I could stick it for too long.Maybe your daughter could just ship over enough for the Bank Holiday, Frank
Cooler and dull here today
Poured with rain for 5th day running, ground sodden and squelchy, 10°. SW France!
Whilst I was at work the sun finally came out to play, got home this evening and all the french beans were sprouting.
Dull start,but definate signs of blue skies,beautiful red skies last night,so have high hopes of a better day.
Blue Sky and fluffy white clouds plus Sunshine in Stockton today, definitely warm, doors and windows open so Sonny the Corgi come Jack Russel is galloping in and out wanting to play. We have him 9 to 4 as his owners next door are at work otherwise he would be locked in, I hate the thought of that.Honeymooners back today from Greece so need to fill the fridge for them, its all go.
Cloudy, windy, but at least it's not actually raining at last and it's 13° so warmer than yesterday.
Dull day here.
WManchester- the sun has just come out! Wind quite strong though. Off to cut the lawn next.
Tonight shall be popping fleece over things in my cold greenhouse & the 1 coldframe that cant be shut because the dahlias in their pots are already too tall, but not yet fully hardenend off. J.
Warm and sunny here with clear blue skies and the occasional white cloud.
I have some dahlias already potted up and outside, only two tubers sprouted from the one's saved though, which was a tab bit disappointing. The seed sown one's are in the GH, still very small but looking good.
At the moment blue skies and sunshine,but can see grey clouds beginning to form and its quite windy.It was gloriuos yesterday.
Last night we had thunder and lightning and hail. Later on we had snow. My babies are now sitting in snow, they're hardy plants but that's hard to take.
Lovely yesterday if the wind had eased it would have been shorts weather. Today 2 degrees and starting to drizzle.
Here in essex as I write this we have hailstones like marbles,roll on flaming June.
Stockton, both lawns cut but it is freezing out there, rapidly clouding over so I think it was a good job I was out early. Getting a nice hot cuppa into me before shopping, "oh" and a clean up before Daughter lands after her Honeymoon to inspect the place.
She shouldnt have much to grumble about should she Frank?
It's cold out there when walking into the NWest wind! I didnt care & wore some wooly gloves. Lots of sun, the odd shower threatening but none yet, & the wind is strong.
Last evening I'd fleeced up plants in the big coldframe, which I cant fully close because of the size of the not yet fully hardened off plants in there & also in my cold greenhouse. It didnt go down quite as cold as expected, thank goodness. Tonight supposed to be slightly warmer. J.
In Nottingham we had a hail storm at 1pm. The temperature dropped to 5 C
Now its sunny and the garden table is steaming dry
Just popped out to the shops and a snow plough passed me.
I hope the council don't know something I don't about the weather.
Hailstorms on and off all day and a very cold wind in the highlands, that's why i am on laptop
