It is still raining! So much rain and so cool and windy.
The wettest June since records began.
My heart goes out to the occupants of the 27,000 homes that are badly flooded in England at present.
This time last year we were sweltering in 86 degrees.
I can't remember how long it is since I took delivery of my new Gazebo, bought so that I could sit out in my garden without burning up. It is still not completely unpacked.
When the sun comes out we will put it up and I will show it to you.
How I wish we could package up some of the rain and share it with those who are suffering drought and would long for some of what we have.
The upside - well our pavements are clean, our greenery, gardens and fields are the lushest green. We will not be having a hose pipe ban this year. The weeds come out of the ground easily. The bird droppings get washed off the windows. The car needs much less cleaning.
