Sorry about there not being a post last week but really the weather was impossible! We have had rain every day since last Wednesday, today so far is sunny but several other mornings have been relatively fine followed by rain in the afternoons, evenings and during the nights. Last Friday there was so much rain in our area that there was a derailment on the main train line from Viterbo to Rome; only yesterday were trains running again. In lots of places there have been landslides and water is pouring off the field into the ditches; fortunately there is now grass growing on the fields so that so there has been no erosion as we have seen when it rains heavily in autumn.
The slope doesn’t have anything different flowering; just Teucrium, rosemary and the White leaved Buddleia ‘Silver Anniversary. The shrub doesn’t look great so I am very glad I moved it t the slope where it does a good job as a background plant, just proving that a plant that is suitable for one position may be totally wrong in another. Euphorbia rigida, always the first to flower is now flowering all over the garden.
The extended daylight hours are making a different to how everything in the garden looks; signs of spring growth are also everywhere to be seen so I do hope that we have seen the back of winter but to be honest I may be a bit premature in hoping this.
What is the weather doing where you live; is it still raining in the UK; has the Polar vortex gone somewhere else? In the southern hemisphere it is still summer, has it been extra hot this year?
