I almost thought I had returned to London last week after almost six or seven days of consecutive grey skies and plenty of rain all around town. It also somehow managed to get pretty cold at the same time, needing to pull out the jumper and the winter jacket I still have around.
Even the locals say that that much rain was extremely unusual. At least, everything seems to be really green as a result (despite all the additional mowing now needed – see above picture). Everything has returned to glorious days of unending sunshine (it’s truly dark at probably about 11pm these days!) although there’s been a few surprise showers roll in suddenly.
