    May = summer = shorts. I'm freezing here The windowsills are full of stuff that needs to go into the greenhouse because the greenhouse is full of stuff that needs to go in the ground but it's too cold and too dry (trowel depth down is just dry sand). I have a week off and it's going to throw it down and then go cold again!

    All we need now is some sort of global pandemic and I might as well give up

    Right I am officially boycotting and ignoring the weather, I shall catch a chill!

    I am waiting for the rain and then it will be squashes under a huge frost guard for as long as the bad weather takes to clear.

    Models firming up on a very unpleasant spell of weather next week starting on Monday with a nasty low bringing wet and windy conditions from the west. As this clears it brings in yet another cold shot from the north, then it stays unsettled and cold for the rest of the week.

    Yuck.

    As anticipated the weather is turning colder and rather more unsettled. Many places can expect a frost tonight, and probably for the next few nights as well.

    Quite wet in the south today, the low that is producing this will move gradually east. Showery elsewhere, with these conditions continuing for the remainder of the week. Showers could become heavy with hail and thunder particularly later in the week when they may also be wintery over hills and in Scotland.

    Potential for something a bit wetter and windier, possibly stormy on Monday/Tuesday, but a lot of uncertainty in the track and intensity of this system at the moment.

    No real indication of temperatures any better than average (and lucky at that) through at least the first week of May.

    Sorry

    Thanks Pen. Seems a shame to wish for rain as the weather is lovely! But my little trees are suffering in the drought and watering by hand is hard work.
    At least the bees and butterflies are having a good time.

    The fine and dry weather is set to continue over the weekend, but be warned we are in for another northerly plunge next week. Possibly not quite as cold as last time, but frosts are likely to remain an issue and there is the possibility of some snow on higher ground in the north. Any precipitation is likely to be mainly in the form of showers and isn't likely to be enough to relieve the currently very dry conditions.

    Once again temperatures are likely to recover only slowly, returning to where we are now possibly some time after the bank holiday.

    I think we might have them Pen. The lotty pond's literally been buzzing with honey bees as they come for a drink, same on my neighbours. Just looking in the back garden they're all over the rosemary (in flower) and the forget-me-nots too.
    It's a bit disconcerting when they disappear from an area though.

    At last there are some honey bees on my apple blossom today. I am so relieved!
