This bank holiday I have been perfectly happy to see it rain although the garden itsself doesn't seem to have minded the dry weather and everything is still way ahead of usual. One advantage of the dry weather has been that things haven't grown quite so out of control this year meaning less rushing out and staking things dripping with rain. Also the grass has just about stayed green but hasn't needed cutting every 5 minutes. Maybe all this is about to change....
