Another washout.

Fill me up with clay,not water.

Fill me up with clay,not water.

What can be said about today.Almost a washout.The tunnell and greenhouse were only open for a short while.With the wind at times along with the showers of rain the day seemed like approaching autumn fast.Touches of winter was there also.Done a few bits of weeding in the tubs in the main garden at evening time.[Whenever allowed thanks to the rain] The whole ship was abandoned by app 6.30pm.It was impossible to proceed much further with the state of the weather.

I could call them instead the other poor seasons.The summer can be called poorer then poor.

Thats a fair 10 minutes of water you have in the barrow John :-D The new photo looks good not that your greenhouse is'nt good either mind you :-D Never mind great time to plan that pond I've always dreamed of :-)

Johnplotman Johnplotman 28 July 2009 22:00:05

Lazy is the right word for the weather Kitty.Impossible to attempt anything in the tunnell.The hateful rain leaves a real spanner in the works.

Johnplotman Johnplotman 28 July 2009 22:12:04

Never be stuck for water for your new pond Bill.I can direct any amount of it to you,thanks to the sky.Hope all your plans about the pond work out for you.[Thanks for the comment about the photo.]

IF this is summer I am dreading winter, my lawn is soggy all the time as it is :(

Johnplotman Johnplotman 28 July 2009 23:04:02

So am i dreading also Gismo.I fear if this lasts much longer that it will be more than winter woollies that will be needed.With August only around the corner we have had almost a splendid summer of winter weather.

That is for sure Dave.It really is looking that way now.Some showers during the day but from app 7 pm its just bucketed down along with an odd bang of thunder.
