Grand mild day pottering around , overcast but mild getting up to 18C, rain held off until late afternoon. Enjoyed the spectacle of the BikeFest in Killarney today, relieving memories of my short lived motorbike ownership years ago and suppressing the mid life crisis desire to get a Harley!

Back to reality visited Torc waterfall, looking good today lush with vegetation.

Nice day in the west despite the gloomy forecast. After 3 days of persistent rain it was very welcome. Not really sunny but high enough cloud cover and one of the kids wore shorts to the playground. Misty rain now.

People in southern europe are spoiled with such a good climate.

Currently nice enough with sunny spells and high cloud in West cork, was wet during the night though. Warm in the sun aswell
Unless we get a hurricane I can say that in future years you will not remember the weather on exam days! I did my University Hons degree finals on my 21st and I remember them letting me keep my cards on the desk but the weather?

Breezy often overcast here today was humid enough earlier but definitely not warm/hot/roasting etc. looking with envy at the scenes from Madrid beautiful blue skies and sun.
June is always the loveliest month. All still fresh and not jaded... Promise... August depresses. Also June is a month for seeing your garden burgeon. The rain has done miracles here where flowers are hard won. I even have pea blossom.

But I do not mind what the weather does. Does not depress me at all, come what may. At my advanced age deeply thankful to be alive.. fascinates with the constant changes.
and |I envy no one. happy here
Wild out here now. Winds buffeting and snarling but snug inside, working on knitting slipper socks as y;day was so cold .. warmer today.

Looking back at last Summers thread, while it may have already been reasonably dry in the East late May onwards and the 'real' Summer may already have started in the West at this point in 2018, I was able to date when the Summer 2018 Heatwave, high temps and drought really got started. I dont have databases to check back over like Sryanbruen but what I did have was the ability to Google the dates of Taylor Swifts Croke Park concert which was the 19th of June.

Aussie Cousins were over here for a month and arrived to drizzle and 'cold for them' temps which saw them attend the concert in wooly hats and scarves and Winter Coats much to our amusement. A day or two later they headed out West to Galway to be greeted by 30deg temps and blue skies where they finally admitted that 25deg nevermind 30deg with our humidity was as stifling as their 40deg Perth temps with low humidity. No more sneering at our Facebook posts about melting on a 26deg Irish Summers day.

It hasn't been a terribly bad start to summer here. Yesterday was a nice day apart from some light rain. The sun was out later and it felt quite warm. The high was 19.2C. Today it's been mostly sunny, although a bit breezy. The high so far was 18.6C.

Ah lads, tis dire,there's no dressing it up. Rain is lashing against the windows here and the the Reeks, so vivid on clear days, are totally shrouded in layers of mist and completely invisible. Gales buffeting my pretty patio flowers, a sorry sodden sight. Just as well they're Geraniums, so tough out and will recover.

But am so happy to be heading to the sun tomorrow because this kind of weather truly depresses me. Wish I could take it as philosophically as Graces7. Maybe when I'm older, but not yet.
