Mrs Bale wonders if we've gone into another weather zone. Has our windy hill been transported to the Pacific Northwest? I think there have been some sunny, warm days this month, but what I remember are rainy, cloudy, raw, dark days. She and I aren't really complaining because after all our British souls are most at home in this sort of weather, but still ... it would be nice to have a wee bit more sunshine. So far the plants seem fine. In fact, they are looking more like those in a tropical rainforest everyday. Green, green, green. I will certainly take this over dry and brown and hot anyday, but still ... it would be nice to see the sun.
Addendum: a few hours later the sun came out! I'm happy. :<)
