Thankyou God......I think?

As the old saying goes, “Careful what you wish for; you might get it”. We were desperate for rain. Nothing, except one thunderstorm, since Feb. Now for the last four days it’s been afternoon/evening storms and loads of rain.

Temperatures have dropped from the high 80s to high 60s.

It’s been greenhouse work and weeding at the moment (the weeding is so much easier after rain). The meadow is knee high in grass and, as according to the forecast it’s sun into June, so my work will be all outside.

BTW….This morning the Growsonyou site has been the slowest ever…it’s driving me mad!

Plenty of rain in Wales aswell over the last few days. I like it in the winter because it's always milder when it rains , but this time of year I do like some warm sunshine

Maybe we should all complain about the slow site. If I did so on my own they wouldn't believe me.

I have written a blog about the slow site last week. At times I have to give up using the site altogether. But surely they know this Hywel?

I know of your blog Denise, but I thought if lots sent to 'contact us' they might take notice. I don't think they read the blogs and comments.

Well if it continues I might well let them know to.
