I have bought a Gazebo on the internet today. Last year was the warmest on record and the predictions for this year are that it will be even hotter. So I wanted to be prepared. I do love the sun but these days one has to limit the exposure time. I will show it to you when it is all in place. Thank you all by dear blogging friends who showed care and sympathy at my recent migraine. Something that I have not had in over 10 years. Probably a number of circumstances combined, including quite severe hay fever. Hopefully this will ease after the rain.

My Pre-Summer Garden
Scenes from my pre-Summer garden just after the rain. It is a Bank Holiday today and people who are working will probably be disappointed with the weather as we have just come out of a warm and sunny spell. It has rained all night and for most of the day. I have to say that I am thrilled with the rain, as I guess all gardeners and farmers are, because in this area we have not had rain for 8 weeks. My garden was beginning to show wide and deep cracks (we are on clay) which was not good news so early in the year. Could we ever have believed that here in England we would be rejoicing to see the rain! I'm sure the folks in Kansas that have been devastated by the tornado's in the last few days are not rejoicing about their weather. My prayers go out to them all. To think that when we were children we thought that "The Wizard of Oz" was all fantasy.
