Get me my rain coat.

Rain called back yet again.

Rain called back yet again.

I thought we might be lucky even for the first half of the day to allow me work in the vegetable garden.Things have not just gone to plan now,no thanks to another washout here.I will head for the tunnell at first light to check over the beds and see how much the rain has attracted of our slug friends.Any that got into the tunnell wont get out again,and this will have been their last drink we hope.Now that the plans are changed a little all i can do is head to the new seed room and continue from there.The seed table is almost fully complete apart from just a few touches here and there,having been work on from just after 5 am.Hard to say what further jobs will be on for the weekend in the vegetable garden just yet.Picture taking yesterday at dinner time.My friend thinks rain is coming.

Gorgeous friend, too. Ah John it doesnt look too bad for today. It should clear up pretty soon.  Although the barometer has dropped a lot since yesterday.

Thanks Jacinta.Hopefully it will and not be holding up plans in the vegetable garden here.

The weather surely can't be relied on. We had a terrible storm last night - very windy. I was glad to be inside.

Dry here now but very very windy.

Soorry to hear that John, I was very lucky then, rain cleared as I started this morning, even saw the yellow round thing in the sky for a while.

Thanks Rachel,Fraoch,and Fran.

A complete change today Fran from about 10.30,apart from a slight nip in the air.Great to get some more work done in the vegetable garden with no rain hold ups.
