Thunder and Lightning

Thunderstorms in the morning and then again in the evening brought some welcome rain. The heaviest rain fell through the morning before it brightened up for the afternoon. It was a very warm muggy afternoon and the threat of a storm never seemed far away.

We'd had 9.6mm of rainfall by the end of the day. I’m hoping the plot got at least the same amount but as it’s a few miles away I can’t be really sure how much fell there due the showery nature of the rainfall. Perhaps it got even more - that would be good.

  1. Great to get some respite from the watering regime!

  2. As the Council are now charging £20 per plot for water I somehow feel I should carry on watering to get my monies worth!
