Tuesday, 2 June 2015
The start of June hasn’t changed the weather and the first day of the month was cool and windy with a few showers throughout the day.
Our rose White Cloud has produced its first flower of the season tucked away in a sheltered spot in the back border.
I’m glad to see the back of May weatherwise as it’s been a very disappointing month. Based on my records over the last five years it’s turned out to be the windiest and by a few hours the dullest. It’s avoided the reputation as the coldest May by the enormous margin of 0.1°C with the average temperature coming in at 11.3°C (52.3°F), the coldest May that I have recorded being 2013 at 11.2°C (52.2°F). For good measure it’s turned out to be the second wettest too so you can see it hadn’t too much going for it. The appropriate tables are shown below.
