wet!!

Two hour's weeding work done this morning...then by lunchtime the rain had set in.  
The earth is warm, but things are just not ripening or growing properly without enough sunshine.

On a brighter note, six out of ten bowls were just right for turning and half have been pierced for berry drainers.  Not bad seeing as they have been sat, wrapped in plastic for two months....but the weather could have something to do with this!!

Humidity can sometimes be a potter's best friend :)

have they decided we are no longer suffering a drought yet?

Mouse, it is too early to tell. The Western Isles of Scotland are almost at hosepipe ban point. The jet stream is south of the British Isles instead of north...

I'm glad to see all the happy changes in your life, and I wish things would ripen for the fruit as well as for you!

I think that you are getting our rain, and we are getting your sunshine. Southern Ontario is in a drought! Giant beetles are in my garden, it is a dry, beetle summer.
