Six word Saturday

Garden soaking up the welcome rain

We've had a very dry month, very unusual for April in England!   I've been watering the vegetable patch almost every night, as promised rain has not materialised. It was therefore a very welcome thunderstorm we had last night, and it's going to rain all day today.   

Normally on a Saturday I'd be wishing for dry weather, but today I'm revelling in the wet and the plants almost smiling at me.

  1. lucky you I'd welcome a bit of rain as I no longer have a lawn its just a dust patch. My son loves the dirt though at least he's happy.

  13. It's raining here this morning and my garden was my first thought. Sure enough, I peaked out the back window and all of my little plants were rejoicing.

    Thanks for playing 6WS!
