It is said it will reach 31C in our area today. Phew!!!
Fortunately Thursday afternoon we had the most amazing thunderstorm.
I saw it coming from the North. Dark clouds were forming and a pink tinge told me this would be a rain giving storm.
I walked out into the garden and waited patiently. Pitter patter, pitter patter and then the heavens opened.
I was soaked but it didn't matter.
It rained solidly for thirty minutes. Torrential rain :)
The drive flooded, the conservatory roof got a good clean (it needed it), it was wonderful.
The whole garden seemed to breathe a sigh of relief.
And the smell, that wonderful smell when rain hits dry soil. Beautiful.
The pond has been topped up. The garden will survive for a few more weeks after the deluge. I am grateful.
Water is so very precious.
