You obviously had worse weather than us, we need the rain and all we get is the odd heavy shower which lasts ten minutes then the hot sun comes out and we are back to where we started....

Hot sun!??!
It's freezing here - 18 to 20°c at best. Got the woodburner going tonight.

No!! are you having me on? still hot here, have moved a lot of plants so we are praying for rain to settle them in....
