We were away in Germany for 12 days at the beginning of the month but understand that the weather in Meopham (as in Germany) was very hot with temperatures reaching 37C and very little rain. Our thanks to our neighbours who kept our garden and greenhouse watered and our plants alive. By the end of the month temperatures had certainly taken a tumble and there was enough rain to fill the water butts.
