Rain, rain, go away (for now at least)


We have had several days of heavy rain showers since Friday. I really hope that the aspirin treatment for blight, will be successful on the tomatoes. I was going to do it every 10 days but due to the weather being cool and often wet, have brought it down to every 7. If we ever get any summer (I know, in a few weeks time it will be burning hot), I hope some tomatoes actually grow and survive!

There were lots of reasonably local gardens having Open Gardens last weekend. They must have been really upset. Yes, you can dress appropriately and traipse around, but it doesn't really cheer you up (as it usually does), or help their gardens, having their lawns squashed.

It was so miserable on Sunday morning, soup was made for lunch. I mean, hot soup in flaming June:(

What a difference today, The sun has finally made an appearance, I'm hoping my hydrangea will find the energy to stand tall again, after its battering in the rain:

  2. And I am a lot closer to you than Essex and we seem to have had more sunshine and a bit less rain than you, Dc! Yes, a shame for Open Gardens, our garden has had plenty of rain but despite that there seems to be no damage.

    1. We have a friend who lives in your vicinity and her weather is also different to ours. Strange isn't it?
