June is not “Flaming June”…. but it ain’t too bad.


All Calm over Allestree Lake

I guess you could say the weather of late was much more typical of early summer in England.  Not exactly wall to wall sunshine but more cloudy skies with occasional sunny breaks.  Still warm and humid which certainly has  encouraged an abundance of growth in the flora….


Burley Brook lost beneath a Fern and  extravagances of Wild Flowers 


Wild and left to grow where they will…and in my view as good as any Flower Show Garden.

Weather outlook for the rest of June…much the same again but with the occasional wet day

7th June
