Chalk and Cheese

Friday was a lovely sunny September day and Saturday in complete contrast turned out to be dull and wet.

01-06 September 2014 Temperature, Rainfall, and Solar Energy
As you can see from the above chart Friday was the warmest (23.2°C) and sunniest day of the month whilst Saturday turned out to be the coolest (16.5°C), dullest and wettest with 4.0mm of rainfall. In fact it was our dullest day since 01 May this year.
In the fine weather on Friday we carried out some tree surgery to our Malus Profusion. The aim is to get more light to our back border so lots of the lower branches to the tree were removed. The tree isn't an amazing specimen and has already shed many of its leaves and has been in autumn mode for a few weeks now. It always manages to put on a spectacular display in spring but then seems to struggle along for the rest of the year. It will be interesting to see how it copes with its latest pruning.
After lots of cutting and pruning on Friday my right arm was quite pleased with some rain and a rest day on Saturday.

  1. It certainly looks stunning in spring. I strained my arm throwing conkers this afternoon, so I'll be glad of a rest tomorrow too.
