New for Old?

As the forecaster’s predicted Wednesday was dull, wet and windy with the wind and rain lasting into the early hours of Thursday morning.
Wednesday’s rain amounted to 9.4mm and the wind was stronger than Tuesday.

In our front garden Katherine Hodgkin is now in full display despite the weather whilst in our neighbours garden last year geraniums are still in flower. That’s certainly value for money from last year’s summer bedding plants.

Our forecast is for more rain in the late afternoon lasting through to mid morning on Friday. It’s just as well we’re busy decorating again this week. It’s not a week for gardening by any stretch of the imagination.


  1. Its hard to believe geraniums are in flower outside, but there they are. I have geraniums indoors that are in flower. They are long lasting plants indeed.

    1. I've had it at the back of my mind that when we get a keen frost that finishes them off I can make a note of the date. So far that keen frost hasn't happened.
