The moment they put a hosepipe ban here in Lincolnshire it started to rain and it has never stopped. We have sandy soil but at the moment it is impossible to get out to do anything, as it is sopping . I have a beautiful Sanders White rambler covering a pergola. It has just started to flower and this morning when I ventured out all the flowers are turning brown. We have sown veg seeds four times and the results are pathetic.
We have a conifer hedge that divides our courtyard garden that desperately needs cutting, but it is too wet to use the hedge cutter. Today we were promised scattered shows, instead we had a torrential thunderstorm. We haven't had a day without rain for about 5 weeks, but at least we aren't flooded.,
I feel for the people who garden for a living, it must be a nightmare.
Well that's the moaning over for now, the sun has come out at last and I am going to try and pick my blackcurrants, that is one thing that has cropped wonderfully.
Tomorrow might be different,---- was that a pig I saw going past the window!.
