fine warm sunny day in north manchester (the torquay of the north)
Cloudy all day in Nottingham. OH just got back from being indoors all day in Manchester.
Hot and sunny again here in the NW, how much longer will it last .
Everything in the garden has put on growth and looking lush so on the strength of that I've sown more veggies and was thinking of starting next years strawberries off.
The grass in the local meadows is growing 3 inches evey day !!!

Mizzley, drizzley and cool. More rain forecast for tomorrow then some sun please.
Quite muggy in East Anglia at times - warm and needing rain, but it didnt happen.
It was actually sunny first thing today & quite breezy, but humid. Hadnt been a cool night, it was still 17C out there at 11pm last night.
Now it's steady rain, which we do need. Patio pots all on 'saucers', expect will need to remove those tomorrow sometime. J.
It hasn't stopped raining all day and quite windy too.
north manchester light rain for the last hour. much needed though
In S.Yorks about 17C all day, bit of sun. Only 13C overnight. Clouded over at 5pm looked like much needed rain on the way. Few spots and now bright again. Breeze getting up, so few spots of rain haven't done anything.
Dryish this morning so got some garden tidying done. Then rain, so off to Bournemouth for fish and chips as a treat.
Warm, humid day here in North Notts and now light showers so no need to water anything tonight.
Just heard local news weather forecast 40 to 50mph winds tomorrow afternoon in S. Yorks, so it's out in the morning tying runners in well, checking climbers and moving pots from exposed areas. Suppose that's the end of the peony flowers.
Lucky you KEF my Peonies are still in bud bar one, the very old one, older than me has flowered and gone with its huge ruby blooms, I love it.Stockton today mixed although warm we were sitting outside in the garden at my grandsons birthday party, it was all lovely a grand family get together "oh" and cake.
Palaisglide, I have two peonies both the same and they came from my Mum in laws when she died 16yrs ago, my hubby says they previously came from his grandad's garden, hubby is 60. I was doubtful that they would accept being transplanted.
They are big, dark ruby and lovely. I'm just so happy I managed to keep them. I always refer to them as "your peonies" when talking to my husband..how sweet? No it's just that everything else is mine...joking
Breezy earlier, wth some sun - washing dred in no time around lunchtime.
Now very blustery, But not cold ... yet! Noted other reports on this thread of winds. I reckon it's working up to something much stronger here; maybe a thunderstorm? Certainly we need some rain.
It's rained here in the NW, on and off for most of the day. Garden got a good soak, it was fine when I got home so sowed more seeds.
dull dark skys . more rain for north manchester water butts need it though . the sun ill come out tomorrow
