For once, the forecast on my phone was right – it did rain today. When I woke up this morning it was great to hear the rain. I find it soothing in any case but it meant that I would now be able to plant two more ornamentals: a cowslip my dad gave me as well as the beleaguered heather, which I hope will survive.
Anyway, here is an aerial shot of my garden, taken when I woke up. The soil always looks better when it is soaked with rain I think, rather than when it is baked hard under a hot sun. I’m so looking forward to seeing this shot in a couple of years when the changes I am putting in place have been accomplished and I have fuller flower beds.
