It’s been raining a lot this month and that’s awesome because of the drought. The garden is looking washed clean and fresh, everythings growing and looking happy and I’m not worrying about the lawns going brown. We’d have to have a wet May, June, July… all the way to Winter to make up for the low rainfall we’ve had over the last two years, but this is certainly helping with the more immediate effects of the drought.
What is this? Deja vu? Some bugger rewriting the Matrix? Nope, it’s just that the rain’s been both the best and the worst thing about this month. In the short dryish spells I’ve been chasing around like a blue arsed fly trying to get the mowing done, and even when I managed to get it done, doing so with damp grass meant it wasn’t as neat as usual. Today I had to do the lower half of the larger main lawns with the tiny walk-behind because even my footsteps were leaving muddy marks and I thought the ride-on would make a horrendous mess. But! I’m not complaining because it’s rain! Which is great! (Bah!)
Today the sun was out (very little rain today) and I hung around like a bad smell after work to sneak a few pics so here’s the Wisteria looking lovely:
