The three words summed up the weather today. Had we not had any 'real' summer days we might finding today boring. As it is it is as I say - cool, dull and still - and bliss
My garden is looking decidedly weather-beaten. Many of the flowers appear to be finished for the year. I am just hoping that once the withering flower heads of some of the perennials like osteospermum, hellenium, scabious and the like will reward me with a second 'flush' if the weather is kind to them. A very wet day would do them (and me) a power of good but them seems to be none on the horizon.
Haven't we had a sudden rush of good results on the sport front? The 1500 metres and Jake Wightman, the Ladies Football team last night and if he can hold on to it maybe Geraint Thomas in Le Tour on Sunday just might manage third place in what must be one of the most gruelling sport feats in the world
I am slowly getting back to normal after feeling decidedly under the weather during this hot spell. Another couple of days of 'normal summer' and I should hopefully be back on form. See you tomorrow.
