Green and pleasant again! How our parks have come back to life after showers ended the summer heatwaves

  • Kensington Gardens, Primrose Hill and Hyde Park in London have been revived

While some garden hose bans can last until September or even October, just a few hours of rain has allowed some of the country’s most famous parks to regain their luster.

London’s Kensington Gardens, Primrose Hill and Hyde Park have been revived from dry browns to lush greens.

Heavy downpours hit the UK last week after the second heat wave of the summer.

Dan Stroud of the Met Office said the weather in much of the country will become “generally unsettled, if not a wet affair” by the weekend.

While the west feels warm this week and hits 20 degrees, temperatures in the east of the country will be slightly below average.

Friday’s new weather could result in “heavy rain with a chance of thunderstorms,” ​​the forecaster said. Looking ahead to mid-September, meteorologists believe the weather will “remain generally unsettled, with a chance of rain or showers in all regions.”
