According to the met office!


By gwendas


Hello everyone
I’m dodging showers today so in and out of the garden going through the new bed I dug out because it is full of rubbish from the developers years ago I think. Lovely warm sunny spells in between fierce showers!
You right, I’d always thought Autumn coinsided with clocks changing but as far as the met office are concerned they count 1st september as Autumn they said on the weather forecast yesterday! Either way the nights here are getting cooler and darker earlier so less evening gardening time!
I’m hoping for an Indian summer this September – especially at the weekends!
It’s great hearing from those of you in other countries and admiring your very different gardens.

We've had the same here - warm but windy, sudden heavy showers. Thanks for the explanation of why September 1st is Autumn. I am not going to think like that, though!
I shall be a rebel - yes, I'm still hoping for some summer. :-)

I've always thought of 21st of Sep as the beginning of autumn aswell - the equinox. although if you go by the weather it's been autumn for the last 2 years.
All the best, Hywel.

Get on Easyjet and come to Budapest. Still the height of summer here as far as temperatures are concerned. 35-37 C next weekend and 20 at night. The evenings are drawing in though. I wish the mosquitoes would go on strike!!!
