What is your weather like? (2)

Not too bad here in Cheshire yesterday. Some nice sunshine developed later in the day but cloud soon returned. It has rained in the night and looks like being a dull wet day. Our heating came on yesterday but isn't on this morning so I guess it must be a bit warmer. This weather is disappointing for the children on holiday. It will brighten as soon as they go back to school, it always does!

GWRS, I would be glad to see the storms around actually arrive as this mugginess is horribe and a good storm might clear the air and---water the garden! We, in the north west usually get the rain before everyone else but that s not happening at the moment.

Very hot again here in Cheshire. Storms are predicted for Wednesday so we will see! It didn't happen last time thunder was predicted. A little rain would dampen down the pollen which would advantage me but it would be sad to see the sunshine disappear again.

Where do you live David?  I am here in Worcestshire at the moment and we have warm muggy and cloudy weather but no rain. The grass around here looks very dry. I am going back home to Cheshire tomorrow and hope to find my planters still looking good though they have been neglected for the last few days.  I think we possibly have more rain in the west of the country.

We are here in Worcestshire for a few days visiting our son and his wife and so far we have been very lucky with the weather. Light cloud and some sun which is fine for our visits to gardens.

It's been raining gently here on and off all day, just right for the garden. We also have lower temperatures here. It is still very humid though which isn't very comfortable. Tomorrow's outlook is for more rain.

Busy-Lizzie, I would have to have air conditioning in the bedroom if our temperatures were that high! It is forecast to get a bit cooler next week and perhaps a little rain. The storms that were promised didn't materialise. It sounds as if the heat we have had came across from you on the continent.

Well Dacalover here in the UK it is much hotter than that and I guess some people might even envy you. The nights are about16c which makes a good night's sleep difficult. The countryside around you looks lush and I expect you have had more rain than us here. My garden is sandy and therefore very dry and my plants are really struggling. The upside is so are the weeds, more watering and less

Weeding to be done!

Hardly any insects in my garden

I have a bug hotel in my Rowan tree and grow most of the plants mentioned plus loads of poppies

which are usually popular with hover flies and bees. The only positive 

thing I can think of to say is that my three apple trees are loaded with fruit so there must be some 

insects about to have pollinated the flowers. The idea of contacting bee keepers is a good thing to do 

and I will do something about that.

I am worried about the lack of insects in my garden. I have four lavender plants in flower and have only seen two bees on them when years back they would have been alive with buzzing noises. I live near agricultural land and I am wondering if they have been heavily sprayed. I don't use any harmful sprays and try to garden organically. 😒
