Honest we are... not made this up! @BBCBreakfast.” The BBC favourite was broadcasting the live show from the Royal Horticultural Society’s Garden at Wisley in Surrey.
Fans flocked to comment on the post, as one person said: “Looks nice, wish I was there.”Another person replied: “It's a real good job you don't suffer from hay fever yourself.”While a third person commented: “Good morning Carol and thank you for the weather it looks so beautiful where you are.”Speaking from the Surrey garden, she said: “It is of course, National Gardening Week.“The RHS are celebrating it with the theme Edible Garden. They’re are encouraging you to grow anything you can eat, in the sense of fruit and vegetables.“So it might be herbs for example in a flower pot in your kitchen or it could be something groovy like an allotment.”
Carol continued: “It’s beautiful here this morning and I’m going to tell you more as we go through the course of the morning.”Quickly moving onto the weather, she said: “It's once again a chilly start. There is also some low mist and cloud from some eastern areas.“And then in the East we will see some sunshine, in the west we’re looking at a cloudier day with some splashes of rain.“The reason for this is because we’ve got a weather front in the west.”The meteorologist went onto to explain what the weather will look like today as we head into milder temperatures.
She said: “Tomorrow we pick up our weather front once again.“We’ll start off on a brighter note in some eastern areas but then we’ve got a weather front moving from the west to the east bringing ins somme cloud.“By then. the weather front will increasingly be turning showery and behind that again it will start to brighten up.”“Temperatures not too dissimilar to what we’re looking at today,” Carol explained.BBC Breakfast airs weekdays from 6.00am on BBC One.
