Apart from two short downpours during thunderstorms we have had no rain here in Czech Republic for the past eight weeks. Yesterday however we had beautiful gentle rain all day but looking at the earth this morning it looks as dry as ever. As we have no mains water here and pump all our water from a well in the garden at least I can today do some washing and use the water collected in the butts to water the vegetables in the green house. Some of the wet stuff you have had in England over the past months would be rearly appreciated here, I have lived and gardened here for three seasons and do miss the english weather.
