    Default Dancing in the rain

    Yippee some proper rain at last.
    I think I could hear all my veggies going slurp slurp slurp this morning.

    I made a special effort yesterday evening to get my flower borders planted up and the rain will save my lots of effort.

    Anyone else suffering from lack of rain or is it just a Lancashire problem.

    It's been dry for many weeks here. The recent rain is such a relief!

    Mother nature can chuck down in two minutes what I can never hope to equal with cans or even a hose pipe.
    Wonderful when she remembers.
    Hope she doesn't start on the hail again because it shredded lots last year about this time.

    Not in Aberdeen!

    I was down in Stratford last week and the weather was lovely. Mind you, all but about 6 of my sunflowers died. I left my son to water them and he did - just not enough. I blame myself...

    First proper rain we've had in a bit and very welcome too, the ground at the plot was rock hard when I was trying to dig last week. Will also fill up the water butts which were looking rather empty after extensive watering of the polytunnel after I'd let it get a bit dried out before I tamed half of it. Am loving it and am even more pleased that it looks like it'll be dry again by Friday when I'm off work

    Some of us live in the past, always talking about back then. Some of us live in the future, always planning what we are going to do. And, then there are those, who neither look behind or ahead, but just enjoy the moment of right now.

    Which one are you and is it how you want to be?

    Its certainly given my onions a kick up the backside.
    Everything looks so fresh. Even the lawn has taken on a wimbledon appearance.
    I'm just a country boy
    Money have I none
    But I've got silver in the stars
    And gold in the morning sun.
