Is that the sun? Damn. When will the hosepipe ban start?
Poured when I drove husband over to hospital for his physio class. I went round the garden yesterday, when it was dry, and I have to say everything looked so healthy and blooming. We’ve been here 7 years and I don’t think we’ve ever had such sustained rain so it’s giving my garden a chance to really gets its roots down.
On the down side I’ve put the heating on in the house for an hour every morning for weeks.
Send it down my way, would you?
When I get a chance to assess it? I may be able to give it a name.
My tomatoes need it and soon.
Witchcraft, that's what it is, no good will come of it, it's what comes of too many people dancing widdershins, that and cutting yourself out of your winter underwear too soon.
I think it must be a UFO, but it isn't making that swirly noise like the ones Ed Bishop blows up on telly.
What is that big bright yellow thing in the sky?
Whatever you do don't frighten it or it will disappear again.
I've heard rumours. It isn't something we see in t'north.
Ooo, maybe. Maybe. Some bits of sky aren't as grey as other bits! So exciting!
We've needed the rain though. Our pond was getting very low. We can judge it by the level against the logs on the back bank and it had got to an almost record low for the time of year.
Now THIS is some climate change I can get behind.
What a gorgeous spot. Complete with quackers! Lovely.
That looks a lot like the Avon. Always very jealous of folks enjoying such sitting places when I chug past in my hired motor boat.
It's not a river though. It's just a pool/lake that runs along the back of seven houses and we each own our own section.
It is great though. And Her Maj took the old deck out and built the new one with her own fair hands! Makes it even better somehow.
Do you have escape ramps for unfortunates like hedgehogs that might fall in?
Oh, there are banks at the sides of the deck with wild flowers and rushes and so on. It's not just a precipitous drop from the deck. It doesn't extend the whole way.
And, sad to say, I haven't seen a hedgehog despite all our woodpiles and nettle patches.
Moorhens, ducks, frogs, toads, newts, sticklebacks, kingfisher, heron. But no hedgehogs.
We've mot seen it around here! Midlands.
Excessive rain actually keeps plant roots near the surface as they don't have to work to get htdration. In dry spells they have to head further down to reach water reserves.
Has the Trump baby blimp broken free?
