Beautiful rain. Wonderful rain. Delicious smells. Proper thunder and lightning.

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 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…)
