In this part of London it rained heavily during most of Sunday, the big day of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Weekend. I can’t imagine what happened to all the street parties. What strange weather we’re having! A week ago it was glorious; we sat in the garden late into the evening, feeling quite Mediterranean. But now I’ve had to take my warm boots and jumpers out of the wardrobe again, and all our salad ingredients suddenly look very unappealing in the cold weather.
Lots of new roses came out just in time to be flattened and waterlogged by today’s downpour. I caught this beautiful yellow rose just as the rain was starting.
