My heavens....they have opened with torrential hailstones and heavy vertical rain. It feels as if the temperatures have fallen by about 4 degrees Celsius, at least. Where was Summer and should I now be asking where is Autumn?
It's amazing what else comes via airmail, that is apart from torrential hailstones and curtains of rain. I received a superb light green cabbage,which was hurled over the six feet high garden fence this morning. The cabbage landed on the grass and was invitingly waiting for me to take delivery of it. It would sit well in any vegetable produce show. It is huge!
In between stormy bursts, we wandered to the local supermarket just to break into the building sense of cabin fever. The weather forecasters foretell that we have a whole week of this strange and inhospitable weather to look forward to.
