Rain?

We so hoped a decent amount of rain would fall yesterday evening, but it didn't. The garden got a sip for about 5 minutes. No refreshing downfall for the flagging plants, or enough to drop the temperature down for sleeping.

At the moment though, it does feel fresher which is lovely.

Out on a hot walk in and out of woods, we came across the usual blackberry bushes in flower. What we didn't expect to see, were 'wild' raspberries. Their fruits were small, but juicy and sweet and a temporary reviving boost. Boy we were so hot at the end despite a breeze.

I missed most of Gardeners World last night, why has it changed night? Despite Beechgrove being my favourite programme (it is also on and off at the moment), I do like to catch up with it.

DB has just about got everything he needs to begin a needlepoint picture of our third Grand dog Mr. L, and is looking forward to it.
