Well, we’ve gone from impending drought to a bout of extended rain. Not that the garden is complaining.
For example, after a hiatus of a few weeks, the rhubarb is starting to poke its head above ground again. And I don’t have to get the watering can out to keep things going.
I wonder how the bees are liking the current conditions, though. This evening, I have caught a bumblebee sheltering under a foxglove flower
although it has since moved or decided to get on with business regardless, as I’ve just seen one going in and out of the flowers for food.
The bumblebees have also been flitting round the strawberry plants still in flower, while the fruit fattens up on the rest. It would be better is the sparrows, or whoever, didn’t put them off and scatter them around the garden, all the same.
