Haven't been on here for ages. Have been busy with stuff in the house decorating etc. Garden is loving the rain, but I am not so much. Fed up with it now. Everything is green, but flowers not liking the strong winds we seem to keep getting. Ruined one of my Clematis.
To be fair, everything is getting a bit overgrown as I have not been able to get out there much and tidy it all up. Dahlias are still in the cool frame and need planting out desparately.
Allotment is loving the rain to a point. Warm spells of sunshine in between and we are getting a few crops coming along now, but I think they could do with some more prolonged periods of sunshine. On the plus point, I haven't had to water much.
Today was rubbish, lots of showers and very heavy at times. Is this all our summer is going to be this year. Off to Cornwall on holiday in a few weeks time, but sort of dreading that it might be just rain, rain, rain . . . . . lets hope things improve.
Enjoyed Hampton Court Flower show on the TV, but missing GW!!
