And as usual, we have had very little rain all week in the Southeast, just a few light showers overnight - I'm even watering Abutilon and Epimedium, not only the usual thirsty buggers like Brugmansia.

You are lucky to have a fairly dry climate in the South East, but i suppose that it all depends on how you look at it.

It seems London is situated in a rainshadow area. Well that is what I see in my Atlas here. In the Low countries instead we had the wettest summer in a hundred years. According to the me-doffice. And colder and much less sun then an average summer.

Really a summer to forget.

Warm and very dry in the Pacific Northwest. Here on south eastern Vancouver Island, there's been a steady dose of sun and temps very comfortable 24°C to 29°C (75°F to 85°F).

Cheers, Barrie.

I've been in France this past week so i have missed most of the gales and rain that hit the North West last week, however my garden has not. Usual plants are damaged, Bananas and Dahlias.

This must be the coldest wettest start to June that i can remember since 1976.
Sunday was +8 with an East gale & rain, Monday was quite good,Tuesday Wednesday, Thursday & Friday were just none stop rain, with temps around 14c. On the plus side we did not get the high winds that the South of the country saw.
