Raindrops.

I’m happy to report that this is as much of Hurricane Flossie as we saw. It won’t have cured our drought, but I can still hear my parched lawn smacking its blades of grass together in thirst quenching appreciation.

That picture could have been taken through my lounge window EXCEPT the precipitation would have been much heavier.

Poor old England has had about one month's summer this year and it's mid-August already. Believe it or not, we were "threatened" with a long, hot summer - the result of global warming - it's BLOODY FREEZING OVER HERE :-(

We are always threatened (that word again) with a hosepipe ban if the weather is likely to be dry - do you have the same warnings?

Mater: We’re on 10% mandatory water restriction which translates into the following for me. I have a big bucket in my shower collecting the excess water, which I then use to water the plants (which have never looked better). Plus the obvious, if it’s yellow then it’s mellow, if it’s brown flush it down!

Lano; Docs orders I’m not allowed in the water for a month, so trust me I’m taking good care of myself to have that day come sooner rather than later!

Now I speak as a very biased mother but I agree with your chums
Meesh - Sharon should try taking her camera out to earn some pennies. Her Pop was a very keen photographer as is her brother and I too enjoy the camera so it's all in the genes.
Sharon, what is the "tower" in your Raindrops picture - I only remember trees through your front window.

lol....the raindrops were from my gutters overflowing-very professional!

Mater; You are correct, the towers are trees in the hood.
