As was mentioned in a blog post by Growing out of chaos, the adage of ‘April showers’ has been severely lacking so far this spring and we have not actually had much, if anything in the way of rain for a few weeks.
Well today it is finally raining. Nothing torrential, no no, that would be really bad for the garden as the dry, hard packed soil would cause it to just run off. No, happily it’s the gentle drizzle that soaks everything down to the core, including people if you are unfortunate enough to be out in it!
So today finds me inside, happily looking out the rain-spotted windows, cup in hand, at a very soggy garden. Will it fill my oh-so-very empty water butt? Not likely unless it gets a bit heavier, but I will be happy with what I get today. B-)
At least the British weather can still be counted on to ruin bank holiday weekends for those families on days out!
I think I will do some baking today instead. Maybe an apple crumble?
