Rain, rain and yet more rain!

It poured with rain in the night and the wind was almost at gale force. I know we need rain as the lake where Graeme and I go fly fishing is so low that it is just not fun! In fact I don't think I've seen it this low for a long time. I don't think it was even as low as this in the drought year of '76. However the heaviness of the downpour has battered my poor begonias and they are all washed out and sad looking! So it doesn't look as if we will be going for a long walk tonight when I get home from work! In fact I am really looking forward to the time when we can light fires and draw the curtains and toast crumpets! Summer wasn't long but when it's gone, it's gone!

  1. won't be long before we put the central heating on! how quick did the summer go? (WHAT summer?). we've not had too much in the way of rain/high winds but its miserable and damp again today. yesterday was steady RAIN the entire day - the CATS were completely FED UP!
    Lets hope for some nice crisp frosty DRY autumnal days!
