Feel the difference.

A fresh, airy day with absolutely no humidity - that has, as the Weatherman said this morning,  'gone back where it belongs - in the Mediterranean'.   'Too windy for June' he also said apologetically, as though it was all his fault - and that we must expect the odd heavy shower.   Too right.   When I drew back the curtains at seven o'clock it was raining steadily but by the time I had eaten my Weetabix the sun was shining.   Then later in the morning, after our Saturday morning Zoom coffee morning, I happened to glance out of the window again - the rain was coming down in sheets and my back patio was flooded.   Now the sun is shining again.

My poor rose - covered in blooms - is laid low and all the flowers are heavy with rain and many on the floor.   I just hope as they dry up they will be upright again.   Luckily I can't see the side garden from the computer room so I don't know how it is faring - perhaps as well.   I think it is this kind of weather that makes us English preoccupied with the weather, especially if we are gardeners.

At least this weather was expected, unlike the awful storm of two or three Summers ago when the village a mile away, where my son and his wife live, had catastrophic flooding with many houses flooded.   My son lives on a lane which is not a made-up road - the people who live on it have to maintain it themselves.   The lane was completely washed away and only a group of kind hearted volunteers, along with donated materials, made the lane up better than it had been before.   Now, whenever heavy rain is forecast sand bags are distributed around the village in advance.   My son rang me from his garden yesterday morning to say that the man who does this was just bringing a pallet of sandbags down the lane 'just in case'.   A very pretty beck runs down the side of the lane, which has a house which used to be the village mill on the side of it.

Our river - the Ure - winds its way through Wensleydale (which used to be called Uredale),and  is a very pretty river until heavy rain falls at which point it becomes a raging torrent and blocks the road in various places.   They say it can rise twenty feet in an hour and go down just as quickly.  Like everywhere I suppose, we are at the mercy of the weather.   The sky is now totally blue with just the odd puffy white cloud here and there.   But for how long?

Each year I have frequent visits from a large ginger Tom cat who chooses to sleep under my hedge often during the Summer.   He is there again today and stays there even when we have a downpour, which must be soaking him through.  I have just taken a photograph from my window - he is a long way away but hope you can see him.   Now I shall try and put the photo on my blog using our new blogger - so far I have managed it quite well - so let's see what happens.

I hope there is no repeat of your floods.
It has been raining steadily here all day and with more to come.
I shall not be walking tomorrow morning!

Here we go again, plenty of rain in your neck of the woods, just when you need it. Guess you guys must have the best growing conditions in the country - several dry days, then a nice drop of rain, then a few dry days. Here today it has been very muggy with a very gusty wind smashing things about. Heavy rain was forecast for 10.00, it went back to 11.00 and then 12.00 and what did we get eventually, 10 mins. of drizzle - we remain bone dry and frustrated!

A couple of days ago our beaches here in Brighton were choc a bloc but tonight its like winter, can't say our weather doesn't give us a variety can we?

Heather said...

Under that conifer hedge your visiting cat is probably nice and dry. Neighbours backing onto our garden had a similar hedge and nothing would grow under it as the soil was so poor and dry. Only when then finally cut it down did the end of our garden come to life.
It has been blissfully cool here today - even in the rain I felt myself coming back to life. I timed my walk very badly and got thoroughly soak in spite of a showerproof hooded jacket. I had to change into dry clothes once home again. The gardens are happy but it has been very windy down here too. I hope your lovely plants revive once the weather settles down again.

Joanne Noragon said...

Strange weather, I agree. It has rained most of the week, and I have not watered plants. Handsome cat, that.

Virginia said...

I hope the mere presence of sandbags did the trick and there's no flooding near your son's home. I love ginger cats - they often ooze with personality. Our 'best ever' family cat was a big ginger. He walked in to my parents home as a kitten, and no amount of publicity could locate an owner, so he stayed. He was named Halley, after the Comet, and he could move that fast as a skittish kitten. Glad the weather isn't so hot for you.

Bovey Belle said...

Gosh, fingers crossed for no flooding. Here this morning we have sunshine and it's quite cool, but the wind is from the North - would you like it back?!

The cat must be sheltered from all but a few spots - they're not daft and like their creature comforts.

My poor roses have taken a battering, blooms on Rosa mundi have all but disappeared overnight, so I need to go and dead-head.

Librarian said...

We've been having rain and thunder yesterday after an uncomfortably hot and humid day, and more rain this morning, so welcome! Apparently, we are to expect such mixed weather for much of this summer, not the seemingly endless hot and dry weeks of the last few years.

Derek Faulkner said...

Wished we could say the same here on Sheppey, Kent, Librarian. Today we have very warm sunshine and gusty, near gale force winds continuing our bone dry weather.

Thanks for your comments - weather still the same at three in the afternoon.
