There is nothing monotonous about the weather in Blighty. We seem to be getting a bit of everything each day at the moment. When its wet it is VERY wet, quickly followed by a warm, sunny patch. What weather for growth! In the short spells when it isn't raining I'm outside cutting back, hacking away at rampant growth. The storm at the weekend battered some plants down and flattened the grass. The thunder growled again for quite a while today but nothing much came of it. I wander round the garden in the moist, warm air and marvel at the tenacity of nature, how quickly it would revert to wild without my efforts. It rather looks as though it has got the better of me now.
The wood man came today so we are stocked for winter. The logs are well seasoned and will burn well. There is something very satisfying about seeing a wood store piled high!
