Lovely sunshine here - but cloud bubbling up and showers predicted for later.  But a joy to see the sun after yesterday's washout.

Oh, sirrah - 'tis many a long day since I was called a wench!  I trust your steed be steady and true!   glug glug glug (it's still raining!)

Aaaaw David  wot a hero!  St. George to the rescue methinks, good knight?  But takest thou great care - such rain as hath not been seen for many merry months may turn thy armour to . . . . rust

Rain non-stop in Somerset.  Unremittingly wet and miserable.

A poetry thread - horticulturally based - sounds a good idea.  D'you remember the Haiku thread on the beeb?  Concentrated the mind wonderfully - and produced some wonderful poetry.

Hooray!  Cleared up this afternoon and lots of sunshine.  Scouts & Guides had St. George's Day parade and kept dry (even if a bit chilly).

Yes Janet - what attracted us to Tiverton is the fact that it is lively with a lovely market and good communication links nearby.  We've looked at several properties, some of which have a handkerchief for a garden - pretty useless so far as I'm concerned, especially when north-facing.  But one or two come up to expectations, so I reckon we'll get there eventually.  And keep fingers crossed for not too much rain!  (One of the downsides of the south west, be it mid-Devon of West Somerset, is that it's on the rainy side of the country.  But on the plus side, that's why it's so green and lush.)

Ooh-er Janet 4:  I'm hoping to move to Tiverton this year, if we can get a bit of movement in the housing market.  Perhaps I'll have a re-think.

Anyway, here in jolly Somerset we have lots of joined-up April showers aka Rain!
