I took these photos before I was unwell and am glad that I did. Since taking them we have had almost 2 weeks of torrential rain and storms. The garden took a battering and much of the blossom disappeared over night. The roses were so heavy with water that they were drooping their heads and many had lost their petals. We Brits are known for obsessing on the weather, the reason being that on the whole we cannot rely on it from one day to the next. Holidaying in this country, even for a few days, and we have to take clothes for every weather occasion. I know there are many longing for rain and I do wish we could share some with them!
However, for us personally, a little damage to my flowers is nothing - there is much flooding in many parts of my country today, homes, roads, fields, so we have a lot to be thankful for.
Our Conference Centre Open Day took place in lovely warm sunshine and on the dot of 4.0 pm which was official ending, the heavens opened once again.
Our church/school site maintenance day it rained and rained and rained. However it did not deter us and much gardening and outside work was completed in the rain. It did mean though that more work than planned was acheived on the inside.
So maybe this year April changed places with June. We had a lovely sunny and warm April when traditionally that month is known for much rain.
For now, let's walk out of my Utility door and into my garden. Enjoy with me.
