Rant of the day :
Well here we go again - another soggy Saturday. The forecast for our region in Lancashire : cloudy , showers . and a bit of sun . What have we got ? A full blown monsoon ! Why oh why do they get it so wrong - hanging baskets bashed to bits ' clematis escaping from their supports - not to mention my new cosmos which I grew from seed getting totally flattened and washed away. The spring shrubs need pruning - no way am I venturing outside at the present so maybe no flowers for me next year,
I know the drought crisis in the other parts of the country was pretty bad but am I alone in thinking the North has got your share ???! On a plus note there's been a lot of bird activity on the feeders this morning ( brave souls ! ) Saw two nuthathatches scurrying up and down the trellis which cheered me up as they are pretty rare in our part of the world - however this weather is driving me nuts. For heavens' sake ITS JUNE !!!!
