There has been a lot less sun this week, lots of rain and in the morning there is always lots of water droplets on the plants even when it hasn’t rained during the night. Has anyone ever worked out how much water plants take from this source? I’m sure in my garden the figure must be quite high; as soon as autumn arrives there is always a little condensation in the air, I notice it most from seeing damp patches on the gravel paths something you just don’t see in summer. I notice the plants though, even without rain they begin to perk up.
Temperatures have remained above freezing but the dampness makes me feel cold AND the plants aren’t that keen, there are fewer flowers now especially on the slope where only Rosemary and Teucrium have flowers.
Do you notice any difference in this view looking up the slope? Here’s a clue you can see the greenhouse more clearly; what’s missing?
Europe seems to be mild and wet and a lot of the US is very cold, what’s the weather doing where you live? Are you having a normal winter or is it surprising you in one way or another?
