Monday was a reasonable day, Tuesday it rained heavily from half way through the night until about 2pm, Wednesday was gloriously sunny all day followed by a cold night and today, Thursday, it’s grey and tomorrow it is forecast to be grey in the morning with rain in the afternoon. So nothing to become bored with! Everyone keeps telling me that much colder temperatures are predicted to arrive soon. Some very cold weather is always good. The roses need pruning and it would be an easier job if they had lost their foliage before I begin. Last year I resorted to pruning off some of the leaves; but the fact that some leaves were persistent meant that there was black spot on several of the plants this year and that’s something I haven’t had before, I suppose the wet spring also aggravated the problem.
Nothing much is happening on the slope; the only flowers now are the prostrate rosemary, the Solanum jasminoides and Teucrium.
What’s the weather like this week with you? Hearing about your weather really makes me feel we’re having a conversation.
