End of summer

The dull and cool weather continued yet again on Thursday. Meteorologically speaking it’s the end of summer although there’s a good argument for suggesting it never really arrived. Unlike most of the country our extremely dry spring was followed by a dry summer. In the last 6 months we've received just 46% of our normal rainfall. But that doesn't mean we've had a glorious summer. August has been cool and cloudy after a promising start. That sums up our summer, one good day here and there or perhaps a nice morning or afternoon but no spell of prolonged summer weather.
Our pergola is in need of a major overall just another one of those projects on the go. It’s completely overgrown so I've started hacking back the vegetation. The aim is to save the wisteria, clematis and honeysuckles growing on the pergola. It’s going to be quite a task!
