The UK weather has delivered probably the most mixed bag of weather ever during this Summer 2012 .
There was record rainfall in June and July and a distinct lack of consistent sunshine from May to August .So far September has delivered spectacular sunshine and temperatures as high as 28c in the South East.This wonderful Indian Summer is rumoured to possibly continue into October.
Lets hope this brings the chance to enjoy our beautiful gardens and relax in the sunshine, feeling very proud of this green and pleasant land after a summer of spectacular Olympics.
