Repeat after me

It's good for the garden
It's good for the garden
It's good for the garden

Feel better yet?

A very soggy garden

Backed by an even soggier canal

Let's jump for joy at our wonderful English rain - without it we'd all have bad backs and sunburn! (Okay that's too far but let's face it at least we won't have a hosepipe ban this year)

Yours in soggy solidarity

  1. Oh Jane, I did chuckle - but yes, that's all you can do, really. We are very soggy here too. FAncy you having a canal behind you - I dream of narrow boats!

    1. Same here - I have visions of drifting along on sunny evenings with crafty (!) friends and plenty of refreshments (ahem) I already have a name for the boat - The Crafty Coot!

  3. I welcomed the rain today Jane, it cooled down my sunburn! But, it can go now, it's watered the garden and the teenagers are now bored! Love the name for your 'future' narrow boat!! Mine will be 'Retired Mother'...because when the teenagers have left home that's exactly what I'll be!...I wish! Take care. Chel x

  14. We have rain here in Ontario too. I keep looking out the window at my gardens planning my next big improvement! We have had LOTS of sunshine though ... two days into rain and I'm already complaining!! The canal boat idea sounds great ... let me know when you've got that arranged and I'll bring my knitting ;) Soggy hugs sloshing your way!! Wendy
