Rain Gauge Stays On Zero For May

A while ago it looked like Friday would be the day the dry spell broke. As it turned out for us it wasn't the case. Friday was a dull day and at times the cloud was heavy enough to produce a very light drizzle but it never amounted to enough to register on my rain gauge.
Temperature & Rainfall Record for Last 4 Weeks
The chart above shows the rainfall I've recorded over the last 4 weeks. We've had nothing at all so far in May and that blue in April amounts to a grand total of 12.2mm or 0.48in. Showers are forecast over the next few days so perhaps we'll be lucky enough to catch a few of them.

In our home greenhouse our peaches are starting to swell a little bit.

At least I know I'll have to keep watering the trees in the greenhouse.
