Hi Byron,
And then they adjust the clocks again, and you have to go to work in the dark again.

...not quite true, there are some quite pleasant groups of small trees cowering in the glens, and they are planting more, including using monster poly tunnels to get them started!.

Not a problem the next weather pattern of rain, probably within 3 hours, will clean it off.

Must go back one day, or a week....

June would be a good time - one doesn't need to burn the midnight oil(lamp) as it never really gets dark.

Not quite so good in December when it barely gets light.

The poplar trees around here are starting to turn already reminding us that autumn isn't far away for us here.
