Still waiting for summer to arrive

Middle of June now and still no sign of summer arriving :(

Daytime temperatures are struggling to reach 17C on a good day and nigh time temps still stubbornly below 10C.  Not really ideal growing weather.
Trees have leafed out, but not much growth since.  I would normally be on my second trim on the larches, but have not even started yet as growth is so slow.

Looking on the bright side, watering is looking after itself more or less, thanks to frequent downpours.

Some of my accent plantings seem to like the weather and are looking nice, so I took a couple of snaps this morning just to cheer me up.
