Weather

Another morning of rain when I drew back the curtains.   We really have had quite enough rain here - certainly the farmers want a couple of weeks of dry weather to get second crop silage in.  The grass is growing at quite a rate.   Judging by my lawn - once a week is no longer enough for mowing, it is more like five days.

Whereas Derek, who lives on the Isle of Sheppey and is a volunteer warden on a Nature Reserve speaks of drought and its effect on the crops.   He tells of speaking to local farmers who say that although the wheat  is changing colour and looks to be ripening well and getting ready to harvest, in fact the actual grains are poor in size and therefore the crop will be a poor one.   We are not a large country and yet our weather patterns are so different.

My Grand daughter lives in Glasgow - I always look for Glasgow on the TV weather map.   Invariably it is raining.   My friends live in Windermere and frequently the weatherman speaks of rain in The Lake District - but quite often it totally misses them.   No wonder we become preoccupied with the weather - especially if we garden.

Now in the later afternoon the rain has stopped.   It is a still, very cloudy, chilly day - certainly not at all like July.   Any minute now my central heating will come on (I feel the cold greatly) and I shall settle down for the night with a new book to start, Talking Heads on the television (aren't they brilliant?) and a rug over my knees.  Just like I would in the middle of Winter!

I daresay we'll get back to summer weather at some point but I am finding this cooler weather more comfortable than a heatwave. Hope it warms up for you soon Pat. Still very changeable down here, dull but dry this morning, then heavy showers and now a pleasant evening with clouds but some sunshine. I do hope the recent strong winds haven't done too much damage to gardens, crops and fruit.

I hope you stay warm and enjoy your new book and television program. You've had so much cool weather this summer, I wonder if you will have a warm Fall?

June and July have seen almost all types of weather here, too - sometimes several in one day. Yesterday started chilly and grey, with a bit of rain late morning. The afternoon was still grey, but warmer, and by the time I finished work and went to help my parents with clearing their balcony (they have new decking laid today), the sun came out and I was soon sweating profusely carrying plant pots and chairs around.
I am so glad we have been having some rain; nobody here is keen on another summer of six weeks uninterrupted sunshine and temperatures of 35 Celsius or more, with not a drop of rain in sight.

Well we share similar weather, and I find it cold as well, with all the flowers wet and bedraggled - typical weather ;)

Another grey chilly morning here and the wind is getting up. Not July weather by any means Thanks for your replies.

Wild and wet here too in North Wales, and a real chill in the air, although I am finding it lovely to be cool again. We are definintely having different weather patterns this last few years, with April and May (and even March this year) being more like Summer and our traditional old Summer's getting wetter, and when warm just humid and not nice.

Yes our grass is now needing cutting more than the once a week we were doing it, you can almost see it growing after a shower of rain. I dread to think what the grass at the Van looks like, the last time I cut it was the week before lockdown!!

Possibly Rachel but I can also remember wet July's, especially one when the corn got so wet that corn in the ears began to sprout before it could be harvested.

I have just had a 40 minute Zoom with my friends in the Lakes - it is absolutely teeming with rain there and has been all day. Here it is cold, breezy and dry.
