      • Good morning all.
        We got all that rain overnight, my front garden was flooded.
        Rain has stopped now and the sun is out.
        I may have to venture into town today, my sisters golden wedding anniversary is coming up shortly.
        Have a good day all and stay safe.

        And your hands begin to harden.

        In the glory of the garden.

          • You're just showing off now.................................it's only 17.5 in the Greenhouse and the water was going into the water butt almost as fast as it was coming out of the tap at the bottom whilst I was filling watering cans. By the way that idea that you have to pick soft fruit in the warm sunshine.................naaaaaah, the Raspberries taste great in the rain...............................!!

            • We had the rain till about 2 then high winds for a time and then sunshine, just a typical summers dayactually managed to stay in all day without any housework well apart from running the hoover over the carpet which is quite easy after all it's usually wife's that do that then a lazy day watching a film, I was out this evening checking the garden and my barrow was sitting full of water which was about 5 inches deep, well hope the weather is a bit better tomorrow, OH has decided she wants to try going shopping first thing in the morning so will see how it goes. Goodnight

              • Good night all.Its been a very busy day for us.
                Went out shopping and got a lovely gift for my sisters golden wedding anniversary.
                After lunch my son and his wife and two kids came in to visit unexpectedly.
                Just as they were leaving my daughter came in with her dog.
                Grandson called later in the evening.
                It was lovely to see them all and it almost felt normal.
                Stay safe all.

                • Goood morning one and all

                  Brighter today but only 12 degrees, supposed to be windy again too.
                  Daughter has an online conference interview this morning so will be showered, breakfasted and out the house before 9.30 today.

                  Enjoy your day, catch up with you later

                  • Living in north-east Spain, where the sun is too hot, the rain too torrential, the hail too big, the wind too windy and the snow too deep.

                    • Morning Bones, Snoop and all.

                      Going to do some weeding today now that the brief downpour of rain has softened the ground up a bit. Got to find somewhere to plant out a hydrangea that was a b'day gift to my Mum in April. Poor thing is terribly potbound now.

                      Put some petrol in the car yesterday, the first time since February! It'll probably last me another 4 months.

                      First time I've been out to buy anything since lockdown.

                        Still very windy here-and warm. Ideal clothes drying day

                        Off to the nearest town for us today.... got to buy powdered marble and choose a natural pigment from a specialist shop so we can get the final layer on our newly insulated walls. Both need to be there -cos we don't want the wrong colour chosen do we rary?

                        OH can sit in the car and read or something whilst I do a shopping grab in Lidl and Leclerc. Not looking forward to those at all.
                        At least we can time it so it'll be almost empty over the lunch period.

                        More weeding later for me -I've started to make a difference at the front of the house... but keep getting distracted by chopping back a shrub or two which have become vastly overgrown

                        • Morning, cool and breezy and had a brief sight of the sun earlier, supposed to be dry all day, but it looks like it might rain again, not that many jobs need doing outside today, so a lazy one might be on the books, take care and stay safe all.
                          If I'm not on here, I'm probably fishing.

                          • Morning its wet and windy here.

                            I've been out re-tying my runners to their canes the wind seems to be unwinding them so they're snapping as they get bashed around. Is anyone else getting this happening ?

                            • Mine aren't that high yet!

                              But I'm glad my outdoor tomatoes are positioned in pots against the house wall...all tied together but are still swaying around.
                              Fortunately nothing snapped yet! (Crosses fingers!)

                              • We had to go into town to the opticians yesterday and I was dreading it. The last time we went it was a nightmare. The local council in their wisdom had decided at short notice a couple of weeks ago to pedestrianise more of it to encourage an outdoor cafe culture without thinking it through. This particular part of town suffered instant death. The on street parking had gone, footfall ceased. I was dreading it as I couldn't think where I was going to park within walking distance, for my husband, of the opticians. Joy! Scheme already reversed! At what cost?
                                I dread to think.
                                It rained all day yesterday. This morning it is grey and windy, just started to rain now. I was looking forward to a day at the allotment today. We shall see.
