What a Difference

Sunday was a lovely summer’s day with the temperature making it up to 25.9°C but feeling far more comfortable than Saturday’s 29.4°C. Although we didn't get heatwave conditions by day we did by night with the temperature not falling below 15°C.

What a contrast this July is with last. By mid month last year we'd had 83.0mm of rain compared to this year’s 3.4mm and I’d recorded just 32 hours of sunshine against 85 hours this year.

For a change we had a day off from doing our own gardening and visited Boundary Cottage to look around the garden created by Roger Brook which was open for charity in conjunction with The National Gardens Scheme. We both enjoyed looking around Roger’s garden and a little banter with Roger too. If you would like to know more about our visit and Roger’s garden Sue has posted more details here.
