Bright sun, rain, hail and then rain again.  Repeat continually throughout the day. It seems that as soon as the roads/pavements dry out the cycle starts again.
Yup! Bright sun so I dashed to the plots to plant my tall peas, just got them in and heard a rumble in the distance. I looked up and a big black cloud was on its way - got home just as the first heavy drops started. Boy, was I lucky it was a deluge  ::) The path is flooded again but at least I didn't have to water the peas :nowink:

Fantastic warm and sunny day, with only a brief, but heavy, hailstorm this afternoon.

Grey and miserable this morning, again :(
4C overnight in the greenhouse and only 11C in there now. Everything inside is dripping so door now open wide, but we have a wind warning from lunchtime and full-on storm force wind warning for tomorrow. So I guess the grape vine will get mildew again this year.... Maybe time to dig it out  :ohmy:

If it was mid February it would be OK, as it's May I'm not too impressed.

Early morning, it is 15 C now, and clear, 28 C later.

Next week could be tough, we are expecting 35 C or more on Tuesday, highs above 32 C from Sunday to Saturday, forecast chances for rain are slim.  Plans to install a shallow well for irrigation never quite materialized, I think I may regret that when I get the water bill.
Gardening is what I'm doing when I don't know what I'm doing.

Rain and quite a strong breeze. Just had to go out to put some of my bedding plants in the greenhouse as they've been getting too much rain lately and getting stressed like me.
Spring always comes when we sow the seeds of life.

13c, but feels like 9c, winds gusting at 50, but may get stronger overnight.  Bedding plants in my 30+ containers just not growing.   Probably annoyed with me !

The wind is really getting up now as well. I've just put the clamps on, and the wires across, the Vitavia greenhouse's double doors, and moved lightweight tubs into the lee of the hedge, so they won't blow around.
Better safe than sorry  ::)

Very windy and very heavy showers.  The warning from the Met. Office was moved forward for the Island earlier today.  The Cats. and the Hovercraft are not running and we have been warned to expect delays on the main ferries as well this evening and tomorrow.   Good thing we aren't planning to go anywhere.

Soggy still after steady rain overnight. Still a bit of a wind about but nothing like yesterday. Grey again :( - it does feel like it's been a very grey year so far.

edit : 11:00 am I've had to turn the central heating on   :ohmy:

Another grey day (you are right Lardman!)
I think the local wind force measure has broken, as it's saying no wind or gusts  :lol: Met office interactive is showing gusts about 48mph.
Low of 8c overnight and 10C now, I daren't open the greenhouse to check the inside low  temp though  :ohmy:
Good luck everybody, stay safe.

PS how windy does it have to be for a storm to get named  :unsure:

Depends if my greenhouse is still standing!

Less windy now, around 10C - very wet. We've had 55mm in the last 24 hours according to wireless gizmo.
