Oh Joyce you are having a trying time.  I hope it stays dry for you.  Yes a garden can be very soothing.  It is still raining in Bristol so I have tidied up in the conservatory where the baby plum tomatoes are doing well and I have an unusual burgundy pelargonium.

Just in time it seems to have rained all night in Bristol.  Dry now but everything very wet out in the garden.

Still not a raindrop in sight but forecast says we may have some late in the afternoon.  Desperately needed.

Just a little drizzle now and then in Bristol.  We need a good drenching.  Having my own broad beans and new potatoes with strawberry mint on for supper tonight.

Such a lovely picture.  Makes me want to get my paintbox out flumpy.  I have just picked myself some flowers from the garden, including cow parsley which comes uninvited but is welcomed.

Forecast gives Bristol area a chance of rain tomorrow, thank goodness.  Garden needs it desperately.
