We had a terrible, dry spring. Of course it was wonderful in one way - Summer arrived in April! But the new cistern was nearly empty before the traditional start of the watering season in June...However, we need not have worried - June and July have been rainy throughout!
The garden is growing wonderfully, although the lawn died (the way it always does) and won't come back until October.
The tomatoes (seen here accessorising themselves with a descendant of one of Lululiz's Morning Glories from last year) are going wild.
We have a whole load of these!
But the parasol and swimming pool seem rather redundant.
Of course we've had good days, and some weeks have been better than others, but the overall picture for June and July has been gloomy. It hasn't spoilt our holidays so far, but I was rather relieved to see that next week's forecast indicates a bit of an improvement in August, when we start our staycation and friends come to visit...
