Dry September So far

3.8 mm of rain here so far this month though it is raining (lightly) at the moment. The front lawn has gone partially brown again though over the last week or so; there are dead patches that never recovered from the June/July drought. I will have to re-seed those areas.

Soil moisture at 30 cm is now the same as at the end of July. It was very windy, warm and sunny yesterday and the dust blowing around was something you don’t often see here in Blighty.

Looking at the rainfall radar, a possible 5+ mm to come.

I’ve noticed a few native trees are changing leaf colour. This is unusually early, possibly the earliest I’ve ever known. Normally you don’t really start to see any autumnal colour until well into October. Most of the photos I’ve taken over the last few years showing the autumn colour at its best have been taken early to mid-November.
