A few short showers today . . . I went outside and did a little dance!
The sky is falling!!! The sky is falling!!!
Hide under the hedge girls . . .
The grass was damp, the air smelled fresh.
A toad came out for a walk and strolled into the greenhouse . . .
The soil looks damp . . . but there was only enough rain to wet the top 1cm of soil.
Underneath and around the plant roots it's still dusty and dry . . .
More rain please, the situation is getting serious.
This is the BBC News report from a farm in a village not far from ours – the twelve weeks without rain will have an impact on all of us.
