Our very strange weather continues! Cool for July, scudding white clouds or just an overcast sky with some sun. We are still sleeping under a duvet – either we’ve become very soft or it really is very much cooler this year often by the end of May the duvet is off! We haven’t had a lot of rain but even just a little IS a lot for this part of central Italy. The garden and the gardener are very happy. My Italian friends and anyone else I speak to aren’t so happy, they feel cheated if the sky isn’t a constant blue from June until September.
I looked back at last year’s posts at this time and apart from the blue sky the slope doesn’t look very different, I’m surprised!
I found this spider on a Verbascum, I think it is different than the ones I usually see, any IDs would be very helpful, thank you.
What areas of your garden look different this year because of the different weather conditions?
