Figs and Campanula - but where's the sunshine?

Sunday, 09 May 10 Overcast 11°C / 52°F

Fig tree leaves looking lovely (pic 1).

Campanula I bought last year from Tesco’s about to burst back into life (pic 2)

Spinach beets (pic 3) and pea meteor (pic 4) doing well.

You can also see the border sown broad beans coming through (pic 5).

I also sowed a lot more French breakfast radishes all over the place – in the raspberry container, in the top tier of one of the hanging baskets next to a half pint pea growing, and straight into a border.

Could generally do with some decent sunshine though. What happened to the amazing weather of 2 weeks ago?
