Aaaaah! that's more like it – a proper English June!
May was all very lovely – al fresco meals, too hot to garden, water butts empty already, wildlife pond shrunk to a puddle . . .
Not any more! This afternoon we had yet another massive downpour – the water butts are probably now overflowing! It was still pouring down, but I couldn't wait any longer – I got soaked, but we have home-grown Gariguette strawberries for 'afters' :-)
