It's raining! I can't say that I am sorry as I have been watering my friend's garden, and her water butts have run dry, so I am pleased to see some rain to get them filled up again, so that I can stop using the hose pipe to water her tomatoes, etc.
The rain also brings an end to the heat, and a little refreshment, which is welcome after a week of soaring temperatures. We have enjoyed the warmth, and the gardens and chicken run have benefited from the dry weather, but the rain will be good for the runner beans in particular.
