Nancy, I hope you don’t mind me changing

the title of my post this week.

While you are commencing Autumnal

weather we are experiencing just the opposite…

as this morning’s shots of our weeping cherry attest.

Today, Saturday, September 23 is forecast

to reach around 27 degrees Celsius and

we are enjoying it because

the tomorrow’s forecast is for

wintry like conditions and only

a fourteen degree top  temperature.

 Last weekend, our…weeping-cherry_7832weeping cherry was a blaze of bloom.

combined with a hot northerly wind…

Even being in the lee of the wind did not help.

Although taken through a window it gives an idea of

how devastating the weather was to the garden.

By mid-week the temperature had dropped by twenty degrees…

but no rain.
