We were hoping for heavy rain last night but don't think we have much more than a gentle shower. It's supposed to be raining heavily at the moment but nothing happening - a very frustrating few days of mizzle and not much more and no progress filling the water butts at all.
I water very little in the garden but do need water for my greenhouse and we used all the waterbutts to fill our re-lined pond back in March. I think we have had no more than half a butt of rain since then : (
if anyone has had enough of their rain can they send some (full) rain clouds to Birmingham please!
