With temperatures soaring to 30c on Thursday, it is the hottest day of the year so far, however the weatherman informs us the Bank Holiday is likely to top that and make a new record for a May Bank Holiday.
Of course, it being Britain we have a run of summery days followed by a stormy breakdown and the heat will be replaced by fresher conditions. The current night time temperatures are more akin to day time at this time of year.
The garden is loving every moment.

Enjoy the long weekend, and don't forget to wear suncream and a hat!
