I have never picked strawberries in August, ever, until this year. Just a sign of how cold and late the summer has been this year. Likewise the blackcurrants which are normally picked in July - I picked a lot today but there are still some left. Happily the long range weather forecast shows settled temperatures for a few weeks so the summer, such as it is, looks set to last well into September.
Couldn't resist a pic of these lovely blue hydrangeas in a local park, gorgeous colour!
