What's the weather like in your area?

Having been out in it since early this morning I can tell you Teesside is very wet although slowly clearing and fairing up a bit.
It is warm and brightening by the minute so we could have a clear evening.
The dark blue Cranes-bill under the dark red Peonia make a wonderful show although I need a clear period to photograph that. For those wishing to know, Granddaughters sunflower is well on its way to the clouds, I will need to take a photo of her standing under it.

"Cor blimy its orrible" the bin floated to the kerb today.
Crossed the Tees to Rains side all dour and nasty but not raining then back to my side lighter but hissing it down "what"! that was the noise it was making as it bombed my ears, forgot my flat cap.
Still at it so today comfort food, the potato's are baking in the oven as I write.

Sunny and warm today on Teesside and that was at 07:00 am, some cloud although nothing serious. I am out in the garden, not at the moment of course just a quick cuppa and kit kat. Hoping the car sprayer has gone back to work, I could still smell it late last night.
You should try that on those cats Rain, it kept me out of the garden.
We were inundated by cats before I got Benji who saw them off, now I tend to damp the garden with a hose last thing at night, cats prefer dry soil for their toilets. try it for a few nights before doing anything drastic, even after putting down seed the cats will try to use it unless you net the area.

A glorious day my side of the Tees "Rain" was out in the garden with Phoebe enjoying it when one of the neighbours started to spray a car with dope. It drove us indoors had to shut the windows and Conservatory to keep the stink of pear drops out so not a happy bunny. We never see them then as soon as the sun shines it is Barby or spraying, why?

Zoomer, I did have a nice day, a big bottle of single malt whisky to add to my collection with instructions "not to drink it in one go".
The family all saw the Olympic flame, the police on the bikes were giving spectators high fives and joining in the fun. Thousands have turned out and when they all got back for lunch we watched on the red button as it happened. The weather was good all day and we got a sunset again tonight.
So a good meal saw the grandchildren got some prezzies and now ready to shut down and bed, early rise tomorrow.

Fathers day? I have socks with pictures on, designer beer, chocolates, a bunch of new pens, I do a lot of writing and probably more when I go out to lunch today .
We have a mixed bag of weather up here in the North East as the Torch makes its way from Durham to us by a serpentine rout.
The weather front is straight along the coast and bright over the north sea although inland it is dull and cloudy. I can make out some of the features over the valley in "Rains" direction but it does look a bit like a plum duff mixture over her.
Oh well at least I do not have to cook the lunch I hope! one never knows with my lot.

Teesside had rain early followed by a long bright spell which is getting a bit dampish now. Still it stayed fine for the Trooping of the Colour which brought back memories, I enjoyed the march off music Geordy hinney, the keel row, Cushy Butterfield, Blaydon races and the Lambton worm among others played.
we get the torch most of the day tomorrow as it goes around the area after leaving Durham, after its leap off the Tyne Bridge yesterday it must be getting a bit battered, probably a bit like Cushy Butterfield her self.

Wet and dismal this morning - so what's new?

What is new Alina is "it is warm rain" if asked "how does my garden grow by Daisy" I would reply "like a jungle", the plants are shooting up where I never put any probably discarded seed that lay dormant.
There has been heavy overnight rain on Teesside much expected as my beloved Peony's are coming into bloom and although well staked it got a couple. The Foxgloves are down but that would be the high wind last evening. As for the rest I will need a machete to cut my way through soon. Plants love warm wet weather.

No sunshine for me today Frank just wall to wall cloud and a chilly wind,  did manage to get to a tropical 16.3c in the garden,  managed to get the back grass cut just in case it does decide to rain over the next few days,  when oh when will the Summer start.

We had a lovely sunny evening Rain, it was windy but sitting in the conservatory watching the sunset it was warm enough. It does feel much cooler now at 22:00 pm better put a warm brick in my jimjams, not forgetting to take it out before retiring of course.

In my neck of the woods Freesia are a greenhouse plant, I think you can grow them outside in a warm sheltered spot in the far South, probably not this year though.
My wife loved them so it was my job to keep them not too hot never too cold free draining yet well watered although not at first, they were labour intensive but the smile I got worth the work needed.
Scabious love a sunny site well drained fertile soil and if you cut them back after flowering will come again.
Still no rain on the Tees in fact it is brightening. just had a phone call, be on parade Sunday for lunch or else? fathers day or something, who invented all these days I ask.
