It’s often said that the British are obsessed with the weather but that’s not really surprising given that we’re a nation of gardeners.
Just about everything we do in the garden is dictated by it and for most of us it’s rarely ever ideal being too cold, dry, hot, wet or windy! Many say that the forecasters hardly ever get it right but beyond a few hours it is inevitably difficult to forecast accurately. I look at the Met Office – local weather forecast.
The Great British Weather is a new four-part live interactive series starting on BBC1 Wednesday at 7.30pm.
There are lots of poems about the weather of which I like this one –
Whether the weather
Whether the weather be fine,
Or whether the weather be not,
Whether the weather be cold,
Or whether the weather be hot,
We’ll weather the weather,
Whatever the weather,
Whether we like it or not!
The author is unknown but I feel sure that whoever did write it was a gardener writing about the great British weather!
Happy gardening…weather permitting!
