we have lovely weather here with a chilly breeze.. we had rain other night.. 4 water cans worth.. garden still hard and dry.. my woodland garden has all wilted and dried up.. cant afford to keep hosing it as water meter goes round like the clappers.. really do need some rain down here..

hubby says thats why it is called "sunny Sandown".. which is great but some rain at night would be good.. didnt get a frost last night.. just as well didtn get tender plants in.
