Rain !!!

Post by Tweetypie » Fri Jul 20, 2018 9:02 pm

It's been raining here in Notts for 2 hours. The hens have eventually ventured out from their hiding place under the shrubs, but are not impressed and have their tail feathers down. Never thought I would be so pleased to see rain pelting down on my freshly cleaned windows :D

Missed us - again - slight shower in the night, 1-2mm, not enough to put an end to nearby noisy party in neighbouring garden. That's all we've had for 51 days now, and no more is forecast for foreseeable future.

Missed us again, it got dark and we thought this is it. Four spots and that was it

We've had nothing. It's cloudy again today. We had glowering, black clouds all day yesterday. It looked like it was going to pour rain, heavily. But not a drop did we see. I've been looking at the weather patterns on www.ventusky.com and it's really frustrating to see the bands of rain heading our way, and either just dissipating into nothing, or veering off to the north before they reach us! https://www.ventusky.com/?p=53.0;-4.1;3&l=rain-3h

Greening up nicely here after some moderate showers. Clover flowering, which I like to see and dockens growing, which I don’t.

Sorry. Local word for a dock (as in rubbing on a place where you've been stung by a nettle).

Nothing growing here, and the trees are looking like they normally would at mid to end September. Dead leaves fluttering down all over. Several trees look distinctly dead. :(

Wouldn't let the grass be cut about 5 weeks ago because it was full of white clover. The bees worked it all, so now it's just brown flower heads.

Light rain for an hour or so yesterday - the brown areas of the "lawn" are less crisp today.

Typical. I go camping and get soaked.
