Must admit, serious rain overnight, the stand-alone barrel is just over half-full. :), dry since 0800, but promised some more for tonight, here's hoping.

We had rain overnight and all day so far.  It got quite heavy around lunchtime, but now just soft steady rainfall.  All the birds are tweeting away out there in excitement  :)

A little rain over night then a scorching day, for working in the garden - cloud came over and the rain started at about 6. It smells lovely out there, but it is still just as hot  :ohmy:

We've had rain again today - forecast said "a sunny afternoon" but no. Bark mulch added to an elderly neighbour's garden to keep it looking good for her. Then it poured.

The smell of rain on dry ground is lovely as Mum says... noticed it the other day. Gorgeous.

A damp start this morning again.  Can't moan though after all the dry weeks previously.  The garden does really seemed to have breathed a sigh of relief and perked up   :)

Same here and a cool 12C, more rain forecast for this afternoon and evening.

Clear now but hailstones here this PM too.
Pretty heavy downpour I caught on the M3 near Winchester but coming home I found that it was so bad it had punched holes in the plastic cover on my pop up greenhouse. Basically ripped the roof to shreds😱😱😱
I am just going to cross my fingers and hope it's enough protection till it's warm enough to put out the rest of my tomatoes and the squashes.

Cheers HH
Keep digging
