The exceptionally soggy July has spilled over into August. Apparently down my way you would have had to go back well over a century to the 1880's to endure a wetter July! yesterday was thoroughly miserable weatherwise and there is no let up as I type this. However there is hope on the horizon: the Met Office reckon that the wet stuff will disappear east tonight and then we should have a few days of pleasant weather as high pressure tries to build from the south west.
Fortunately the flowers on my buddleia at the back of the patio haven't quite gone over so fingers crossed there may be a late surge in butterfly numbers.
