It’s that time again. Here we are, now in July, Wimbledon is on, strawberries are being eaten, champagne is being poured and the sun is shining ….. for now. Will we see the summer through without rain? I doubt it.
British Weather is unpredictable. Global Warming might not be high on Donald Trumps agenda, but those who believe in it, kind of hope for a few extra weeks of reliable sunshine, here in the UK, as a small short term perk in an otherwise gloomy outlook for the world we live in today.
The reality is, the weather we experience here in the UK is sporadic, hot one day (as we saw in June) rain the next. Us Brits have come to expect the rain… and plenty of it.
Wimbledon has started
However you watch it, whether on TV or in person, the fact is, Wimbledon season is likely to mean rain and potentially, lots of it.
How often will the courts be covered?
Game doesn’t stop unless it has to. The ooh’s and ah’s as clouds come and only those lucky enough to be in centre court have the luxury of continued play, due to the roof.
Enjoying Outside whatever the weather
Rain isn’t bad. We need it, especially us gardeners.
The fact is, after a heat wave (such as the one in June) we welcome a drop of rain. Me personally, I quite like a refreshing shower mid summer, when I can sit under my parasol. It reminds me of childhood, hearing the pitter patter of rain dropping onto my tent, enjoying being outside, yet staying dry.
Protective Rain Covers
It’s not only Wimbledon that needs protective covers. Many of us have outdoor patio furniture, BBQ’s, Parasols, Benches and other furniture which is seasonal. It isn’t practical to put them all away into the garage every time a shower is looming or the skies go grey.
Garden Universal provide that Wimbledon touch, with a range of protective covers to suit every item you bring our for the summer season.
Whatever you have, whether it’s a charcoal classic BBQ or Gas BBQ, they need protecting. Over the last 15 years, I have had 3 or 4 BBQ’s which have perished far quicker than they should, simply because I neglected to invest in a good cover to protect from the rain.
The simple fact is, keeping your BBQ outside without a cover, will limit it’s life span unless. Invest in a protective cover for it and it will save you a lot of money in the long run. Replacing a cover is far cheaper than buying a new BBQ.
FACT: The rain will come. So will the rust!!
