Typical bank holiday weather

We are having a good steady downpour of rain this morning - hallelujah!  It is the sort of rain that really soaks in to the soil - no matter how you water by hand it never reaches deep down to the roots of the plants - unless you stand there for hours.  It is a shame for those who had something planned for today, but we gardeners are a selfish lot. On the plus side, we do make the world a beautiful place to live in through our    gardens Pictured above:  Rose, Zephirin Druin - a climber with a wonderful fragrance


  1. It constantly looked like rain here all weekend, although it didn't until yesterday afternoon.
    Gardens are beautiful but the same can't be said about some allotments!
