It seems ever since June started, it has rained the vast majority of the time. I'm sure that's not true as I've walked the children down to the leisure centre for swimming every working day, and only one of those was soggy. However, the weekends definitely seem to have been moisture enhanced!
Fortunately I didn't mind it raining today. 36 hours ago I was despairing at the concept, but then my son came down with a sickness bug and I had to cancel his outdoor birthday party in the nearby nature reserve. Mid afternoon today I needed some fresh air and took a walk around the garden, which is beginning to look rather lush and Eden like due to the wildly contrasting weather conditions we've had lately. It was a great opportunity to practise macro photography on the plethora of raindrops adorning the vibrant leaves and swollen fruit.
