..as in raindrops. YES IT RAINED AT LAST HOORAY!!
Beautiful rain. Wonderful rain. Delicious smells. Proper thunder and lightning.
Water butts are full again.
Fell asleep to rain – the sound of gutters overflowing.
Woke to rain -cars swishing by in puddles and softly dripping trees.
There is even mud!
Overnight everything looks greener – lush and plump and visibly growing.
I was hoping for an inch – but thought I was being overoptimistic. But we had around one and a half inches in the allotment rain gauge, about 40mm.
I reckon that gives me a few days off carrying the cans… except for in the greenhouse of course but even that leaks in several places so some things have been watered ( hmm – including my chair which I forgot to move…)
Aren’t we lucky?
