I'm rather behind with blogging, but shall do a few entries on the things that have been going on over the last couple of weeks.
One of the most memorable moments was when I was planting a border at the bottom of the garden. It suddenly clouded over and began to rain. Within seconds it was torrential and I had to run inside. Having been sunny all day I assumed that it was a quick thunderstorm and would pass, but we waited and waited and waited. Unfortunately I'd lifted 2 shrubs from the ground, so I had to go back out and plant them in the rain.
It rained for around 3 hours and by the time it stopped the vegetable patch was underwater, there was a stream running down the garden and the pond was red with the colour of clay.
