November 2016 Part 4.
Many thanks to Squirrelbasket for hosting this monthly meme #Treefollowing
I left you last month October wondering if the 3 remaining Apple Fruits on my James Grieve Apple tree would be ripe and ready to eat.
Above average temperatures, very little rainfall and light winds where the notable hallmarks of October in the garden, temperatures did not dip below 5°C for the month and rainfall totalled 27.9mm of rain whereas October 2015 totaled 64.4mm.
A very dry month was had.

A hot dry start to the month ended with a bit of a splash, and some thunder and some lightning….
In-fact 50% of the total rainfall for the month fell in one night towards the end of the month.
