News from the garden - There is no news!

Just a quick update to say I haven't given up blogging, but for the past 6 days I have had to give up gardening. 

Rain! so much rain! I am not complaining because we really need it. As I sit typing this the wind in howling and the rain is flying past the windows horizontally. Hopefully the amount of rain we are having now means that we will have a glorious summer. 

The plants that are outside are looking wonderfully green, and the stuff in the greenhouse is growing rapidly. So rapidly some of it still needs to be outside but there is never enough time between showers to get it out. 

The chickens are very fed up. They want to be outside but they don't like to be wet. I have put a tarpaulin over the top of the run to give them a little area that is drier and they spend there days looking longingly outside.

The puppy doesn't care, no matter how much it rains he wants to be outside. Luckily as he is short haired he doesn't take long to dry!

Will get out as soon as I can and get some more new pictures up. 


  1. Our dog hates the rain and just refuses to go out to do the necessary when it is pouring down. We send her out and she stands under the porch roof.

  2. Wow! Interesting post indeed! Nice post.
