ooops, I spoke too soon. The wind and rain came back with a vengeance and coincided with the arrival of a brass sundial we'd ordered from UK. Since then, not enough sun at solar noon to get it calibrated properly and properly installed. It's a real beauty and I will post about it as soon as.

"Mustn't grumble" (a favourite English cliche, after folk have a good long grumble!)....the onions, peppers and tomatoes in the veg patch are grateful for the rain.

Lots of rain and wind around here too. The vegetables look gorgeous though.

Come rain come sun. Remember an old Chinese saying, something like this:

If you want to be happy one day - get drunk.

If you want to be happy a month - take a pig to slaughter.

If you want to be happy a year - get married.

If you want to be happy the whole life - get yourself a garden.

Look forward to seeing your new sundial.
Don't talk to me about rain, cold, wind, you get the picture???
