Thursday morning was sunny and warm but by mid-afternoon it had gone really dark with rumbling thunder and spasmodic lightning followed by hail and torrential rain. The service road outside was like a flowing river with water almost up to the top of the kerb-edge. Then there was a power cut for three hours.
Friday was damp and dull with a further power cut from before lunch-time through to well into the afternoon. I’m told that much of the allotment site was waterlogged, which wasn’t surprising. Yesterday wasn’t much better, and looking round the plot this morning it’s clear just how much rain there’d been.
The forecast for the coming week looks like being dry but mostly dull so I hope to do some welcome plotting.
A sure sign of autumn are these bright red dogwood rose hips.
Have a good week!
