    Here in the NW we are forcast heavy rain, possible storms Friday night. We've had really sunny weather the past few days too so the ground would benefit. Will need to put in some support for foxgloves in the garden.

    Spring and summer have been cut back. Part of the governemnt's austerity measures.

    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.

    Surely a referendum would be needed before the governement could do that.

    They promised us thunderstorms last weekend so I used weed and feed on the grass but we haven't had any rain since so I have had to water the grass several times this week, they are promising us thunder storms this weekend so I won't hold my breath.

    Very calm here - absolutely no wind. A slight rainfall and that's it.The garden is very parched and desperately needs rain.
