It's been dull and wet here and the forcast doesn't get any better for the rest of the week.
Can't get out in the garden now during the week as it's dark when I get home but have saved up some jobs which can be done in the GH this weekend.
Throwing it down in mid Devon. Started raining middle of yesterday afternoon and doesn't look like stopping ever, at the moment. Might stop building the pond and go for an ark - the lanes were already flooding on the way back from work today.
Here in Sussex its absolutely p#####g down so heavily it looks foggy. The patch of grass to the side is under water. Won't be going out there today.
its a bit brighter at the moment but we are having very heavy showers, trying to tidy the shed, lunch break
Its actually stopped raining and the sun is shining. Looks beautiful out there now.
EEk Eek had 2 hours without rain. 18C according to o/s thermometer Think it is an ornament.
After a very dry year we are now getting a top-up to our gardens, which with the mild temps. probably means that our plants will be going into the winter in good nick, mostly. I can't see anything in my garden which appears to be struggling at the moment, so I have decided not to complain about my lot.
AND we haven't had any early frosts to finish off my flowers
Woody don't mention F word. Today we have has 2 hrs without rain, first in 5 days.
We had another downpour earlier with a great storm
Dry this morning but rain for most of the afternoon.
Some mornings it's been a tad bit cold here, noticed the dahlias starting to go over today.
At the moment here in Sussex its beautiful, the sun is shining, hope it stays all day, I need to get the last few bits done in the garden. Must get those acorns off the grass. And hopefully if the soil is not too wet, dig a small flower bed and plant my last few plants
Dahlias still producing here in Hampshire, picked a large bunch yesterday. Haven't been particularly careful with deadheading this year and it doesn't seem to have made a lot of difference to flower power. Weather dry today.
We had our first frost this morning! (South Yorkshire). It was rather a shock to the system considering on Tuesday night we were working in jeans and t shirts long past 23:00.
cold start.. at least there is no torrential rain and thunder and lightening today.. is dry an damp.. got lots done in garden today.. planted up some bulbs..
thou the ones from gardeners world for 5.60 other month have arrived and the ballerina ones are mouldy damp and useless!!!
glorious sunshine today very warm but the forcast is for heavy rain tomorrow
Slowly drying out after yesterday's downpour .
Very plesant at the moment (Herefordshire border) and divided up some pulmonarias in the back garden. Bobby robin grabbibg bugs as I was working.

04:15 and its blowing an absolute gale here (South Yorkshire) no idea if it is the start of the massive storm but I hope you're all safe.
Not looking forward to the clean up when it gets light!
