The temperatures last week and again this week have been in the mid-twenties and are set to soar to 30 degrees centigrade at the weekend. It's definitely time to get the barbecue and the summer umbrellas out. The schools break up this Friday and the half term guests are in for a real treat with a great weather forecast for the weekend. and into next week. Luckily we had quite a bit of overnight rain last week, which means the cottage garden is still looking lovely.
