I’m really enjoying the cooler days and, even the grey skies but, most of all I’m enjoying the hint of a breeze. It’s wonderful to venture out into the garden and be able to breathe; even on the trip to the garden centre this afternoon, it made a change not to need the air-conditioning on in the car.
At present, the controller in the sky seems to be thwarting the clouds attempts to deposit some rain on us. This afternoon when I ventured out to prepare/create a small stone-basin rockery, two or three minute drops of rain deposited themselves on my bald pate but, a few hours on, the showers have not yet manifest themselves, only a few false starts of which any rainmaker would feel embarrassed.
I really felt that I’d made a genuine attempt to bring on the cloudburst when, once again I topped up the pond! It’s really not many weeks ago that whenever our neighbours hung out the washing a downpour was guaranteed. I suppose there are very few certainties in life!
