Summer may be over

After the best summer since 1976, it looks like the fine weather may be over – we’ve had a fair few showers at Silverglades in the past two weeks, enough to lift the ban on open fires. But to be honest, the site needed the rain. Not only were the lawns parched but a few of the trees were showing signs of distress due to drought. Now, the grass is growing, the lawns are green again and the trees are recovering (apart form one or two – an oak adjacent to the short drive leading to the top lawn from the car park dropped a large branch last week in high winds, so I’d suggest cars should be parked away from this tree until it can be inspected.)
