The bog!!!

The bog!!!

If it does not stop soon - the rain/hail etc., I am going to have to look at planting up my back garden with Bog Plants. Am soooooooooooooooooooooooooo fed uppppppppppppppppp!!!  Didn't write any journal for last 2 days as I refused to talk about the weather but what can I say???? Grass is so long now, I could nearly make hay - if I could ever get it cut. Weeds, slugs and my Gunnera are all happy - not me!!

don't despair just yet, according to an inside source we have four rain free days left this year, if we get any more than this then there will a hosepipe ban.

Obviously the Customs thought it would look better in their garden Sue. They took it from Tom. Must have been thinking of holding up the plane with it!!!!! Did it look like a weapon of mass destruction ??? Thanks Rachel - Glad something is looking good!!! If there is a hosepipe ban - don't worry - there is enough water in my garden for everyone !!!!!
