I've been watering ever since I got home about 6.30, with a short break for supper - the sprinkler's been on most of the time too - I've moved it along the Shady Bank bit by bit and it's all had a soaking. Now it's on the end of the herb bed where the grape vine, rhubarb and French tarragon are - that bit needs a really good soaking.
When I get up in the morning I'll put the sprinkler on the runner beans for half an hour, then move it along to the raspberries, gooseberries, strawberries and pear tree to give them a good drink until I leave for work.
I must say that the fig on my new fig tree is getting riper and riper - won't be long now
And I've got a pot of Rio Negro lilies that are just about to burst open - the colour is amazing - I'll take a photo of them tomorrow for you
