Just got home from dropping the missus off to work and got soaked getting from the car into the house.  It's all of 15 yards.

I'm sick of this rotten weather.  I need to get the garden sorted for when we go away at the weekend but there's no chance.

    Where do I sign? :)

    TBH - here in essex, we've had no rain in weeks. I've got summer bedding wilting and dying as the soil is like concrete, and shrubs loosing leaves also due to drought.
    Not as if we've had much summer weather - just cloud and wind

    Here in not-so-glorious Gloucestershire it is really getting depressing.  We'll get a couple of days where things get promising and then down it comes again.  At least I don't need to water new plants quite so much!

    Here near Manchester with its legendary rainfall it is living up to that legend and some more! Enough is enough. Weeds seem to love it and are rapidly gaining control. Grrrrr!

    image  I'm in East Anglia and I'm not moaning really (sorry) ... it's warm so things are growing, and we're getting a bit more rain than usual so I'm not having to use the hose as the waterbutts are continually being topped up ... we've got more slugs than usual image  but the nematodes are arriving today ......... 

    And I got loads of washing dry yesterday image
