It's rained! For more than an hour! Yeaaaaahhhhhh!

And it's gentle continuous rain, which is exactly what we need.   The ground is beginning to darken which means it's sucking up the water so none will be wasted.  

Thank you Rain God!

    It's so cool and fresh out there.  I've had to put long trousers on again!

    We had about 2 hours of steady rain here in West Midlands couldn't be more pleased despite my garden cushions getting soaked!

    Where I am in the Thames Valley, there’s not been any since late May. Bonkers.

    I think our rains now stopped - boo. For a while I was quite hopeful.:'(

    We had a bit and it got quite heavy for a short while. I hope it was enough to put the hill fires out finally. I gave both cars a cursory wash with one bucket of water between them and let the rain do the rinsing. Hopefully there will be enough in the water butts tomorrow to top the pond back up again.
