Well, not actually in the rain – it’s actually brightening up here, we have the first sunshine for a few days just struggling through the clouds. After a couple of hot, sunny weeks we get a few days of rain and already people are complaining about how summer is already over, how rotten our weather is, etc. I’m not complaining – the garden looks more lush and healthy by the day, and the only downsides are the increase in slugs and snails, and the possibility of a poor tomato harvest if it stays wet.
Flowers are opening, some getting a little battered by the rain which is a pity, but more will come.
We seem to have a lot of blue and pink just now, but the yellows won’t be far behind. The santolina is a mass of buds, and I think it’s just waiting for a day or two of sun to warm it up. Maybe this week.
