The beginning of July was hot, sunny and all in all very pleasant with the occasional warm shower of rain.

End of May 2017
I ended last month’s view wishing it would rain… well It did, in bucket fulls, mostly in one or two hard showers.
November in the Garden
November started much the same as October ended, above average temperatures and dry days.
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.
