After last Saturday’s stormy and very wet weather, which had me at one point running out to move some pots that were flooded with water (and getting soaked in the process which took 5 minutes), the weather has calmed down again, and yesterday and today we have been treated to winter sun. Daytime temperatures hover around 14C, which for someone who grew up in Northern Europe is fine for winter (the locals shiver….).
Oh what a miserable, grey and wet day it is here! Not a day to be out and gardening, or even taking photos for the blog. At least we heard there were no more community cases of Covid-19 after last week’s scare. Keep you fingers crossed for us that it stays like that!
As we approach the shortest day, the weather remains mild here, with day time temperatures up to 16 or 17C, with nights around 12C. With the odd bits of rain as well, things continue to grow well out there. I’ve been able to get out and tidy a bit, but with so many pots now on the terrace, reaching the ones at the back (sorry curry plant and thyme). I really need a reorganisation somehow!
The shortest day approaches here in the Southern Hemisphere. It is the season of dark mornings walking to work, cooler days and time to rug up and light candles.
