Forecast rain for yesterday didn't happen. Parts of the garden are looking very dry and dusty again. Soz to all in Scotland and the NW who are fed up with wet and cold- but I would much prefer wetter summers and a lush, verdant garden to the hot, dry, windy conditions we get here. So much time and money wasted watering - and it's never as good as a few hours solid rain. Garden always looks tired and as though it's going over by late July - and ants everywhere...
Long to grow huge, lovely ferns, hostas and all the other things associated with damp woodlands & river valleys.
Sorry for the moan - feel better now
Hope your dog is OK Steve - something you can deal with at least and hope you get outside in the garden DD (although I'd dislike your weather situation even more!). Enjoy the decorating WS - I'm having a year off this year (if you don't count painting the shed!). Hope the play is good BL (love Montpazier).
Everybody else - enjoy whatever you're up to.
