Midsummer now past
Hard to believe half the year has gone and we are now running downhill until December. We seem to have one, or if we are amazingly lucky two,fine days followed by enoromously damaging winds and rain. A poor friend who runs a local nursery said after a while their customers just give up on gardening and decide to leave it all until next year. We are so lucky that pottery does not go off or turn brown in the wet and wind, and we have seen a lot of our regular summer visitors from overseas, though they won’t be having much fun looking at the gardens on the Kent and Sussex borders, in particular Great Dixter and Sissinghurst, both of which make great outings when spending a few days in Rye.
