Kev, still in the 90s so anytime you want to send the rain would be nice!

What a shame to have brown grass, ours is sort of green where as everyones'
around us is yellow. You can sure tell a true gardener if they attempt to keep
the yard green during a dry hot spell?? .08 inches of rain in July and for us that
is extremely dry!

Its not rained for two days here seems a bit strange. :lol:


Oh ya ... as soon as there's any regular rain ... boom! the grass will regrow. Lawn is very low on my gardening list and with a half acre, metered water, and a total outside watering ban, hey what can you do.!?

Speaking of rain, we're forecast for rain this Thursday and low to mid 20's Centigrade. Yay !!!

This should mean a warm spell or heat wave in England very soon.

Cheers, Barrie.

Post Water restrictions
Barrie,
I didn't realise you also had an outside watering ban. We went to stage two restrictions here just as I was about to leave on a two week road trip. I had to cancel the trip. We are keeping things alive by using recycled water. What upsets me is that if we had gone away on our trip and had my neighhbour water for me, we would have used less water than staying home.

We've had an extended period of warm weather for ages, but it looks set to drop back to average over the next couple of days. Yesterday was 28c, today about the same, but the next two days will be about 22c. There will even be a bit of snow above 1700m in the Snowies.

Yeah, but all that ash is a real bonus to your garden soil - very fertile stuff! :lol: Actually, in a couple weeks I'm going to visit Kagoshiima City in the south of Kyushu and its attending volcano, Sakurajima, looming just across the bay. Since January the volcano has sent forth 400 or so bursts of ash - above average - asthma has been on the rise particularly among children. Ash fall is so common there that people have "ash umbrellas" and it is common to have to wash your car and sweep the sidewalk to get rid of the stuff. Sound like fun? Good farming in that area though....

Oddly enough, it has been cool here too Kev, cooler than normal to be sure. This morning went down to 5 degrees, though it will recover nicely by afternoon, maybe up to the high teens. Recently days only up to 10-12 C with a brisk north wind have been common - unusual for these parts. The plants have all been growing at a much slower pace in response. Can't wait to see what summer has in store....blizzards of locusts? Fire-hail storms? Floods? :roll:

That made front page news on the national newspaper today here.
The worst seems that there's no predictable end to the ash plume or where it will effect. A thick heavy ash cloud over my place would seem to be an ugly forecast.

Cheers ... best of luck there Kev, Barrie.

Good one Kev ... One always hates an ash cloud.
I've read that this recent activity may be an indication of things to come.
Volcanic activity in the area and subsequent glacier melting could spur on more volcanic episodes. Who knows for certain?

Cheers, Barrie.

It was glorious here on Saturday Adam, 16C and I actually got sunburnt. Sunday was cooler, 13C but still pleasant. Yesterday was terrible, 4.5C up until 4pm when the sun finally came out. Not bad today but there's a wicked cold wind just to spoil everything :evil: .
