We had wet yesterday morning, (badly needed though) and today it is quite bright and dry. Off out in the garden shortly, been making jam just potted it up and cleared away, now off to see the plants. Have a good day Kath. :O)

A lovely sunny day here at the moment....but heavy rain is forecast for tomorrow. When my dad was alive he lived in Cornwall, I used to ask him what the weather was like where he lived....2 days later we had the same weather here...rain or shine....we just happen to get a lot of west winds here....and as we are east of the UK thats the reason.

yesterday was heavy rains and high winds... at about 7:30ish this morning it was lovely blue skys and it also had white light fluffy clouds....a bit sad for me because the geese that i look forward to coming over to stay with us on our shores in summer....were heading on their way home across the seas this morning....but my my my did they look so lovely!!!!! necks stretched out as far as they could go....wings flapping and beautiful call out instruction sounds to each other.... now as i write this 11:14am its still quite bright, however bit overcast too :-s if that makes sense? high winds but very warm....nice blowing day for hanging out washing... iam in cambridgeshire area!!!! down mid-driftish way on map......that reminds me mine needs attention (middrift) :):):) have nice day....

Just got back from my walk too Kath and I hope we get some rain later on today as the garden could do with a good soaking.

Still dreich Stroller but rain stopped but wind now getting up so think more rain on its way.

But at least i got some photos taken of my October Garden .

Jane certainly not a day to get laundry out to dry.

Rogi enjoy your sunny day.

We have had spots of rain here and there but mainly overnight day before yesterday. The ground is still wet enough for one not to go mad with the watering can but I shall make sure that my soil isn't too dry this evening.

It is warm though so happy gardening to those of us who can manage to get out there today.

We had heavy rain last night until just after midnight but it wasn't cold. Still working outside during the night with a t-shirt on and thin waterproof jacket. No double or triple layers yet, which is good.
Washing dried outside today too! It's all good thus far :)

Bit wet here Kath but I did expect more rain than we got. It is really mild.
