However, the sun just keeps on shining and here we are at the beginning of November and the leaves are still on the trees.
There were predictions of an early Autumn, but summer just wouldn’t let go, sogarden centres are ready for Christmas and consumers still enjoying lovely warm days. Things are now about to change with temperatures dropping to more seasonal norms and Autumn and Christmas ready for lift off.
