Its been a sultry week here in London. Moisture has been heavy in the air, reluctant to fall, forming a dull haze over the Thames valley. Reluctantly this afternoon a white sky found the energy to form a thin drizzle. In the garden every leaf and flower is finely beaded with water, deftly poised, waiting for the slightest breeze to dislodge the droplets.

    1. I am not good with humidity Judy. In fact I hate it. I often wonder why I chose a job which requires extensive travel in the tropics! Gardening in a swamp doesn’t appeal, not least because I imagine I’d get bitten a lot. Not long until autumn now, which I imagine is fresher?
