7 May, 2011

 

We've had rain for last 3-4nights and most of today and we have got it for nearly all next week as well, i know we all need rain, but up here when it does rain it doesnot know when to stop.

I love rain. It freshens the place up, but I don't want too much. Glad you've had some though :o))

7 May, 2011

 

We have had some too, its nice to see that even the grass is starting to perk up , it would be nice though if it rained to order, showers during the night and sunshine through the day , but then I have always been a bit of an idealist lol

Lol... That's good to know your grass is greening up...

.. but it seems some areas of the UK have only had enough rain to fill the water butts... not enough to improve the lawns ....

Terratoonie:

The people there don't really know what a long dry season really is. LOL! :>)

When you don't receive any rain at all for 7 to 9 months...then you can call it a dry spell (like here in San Diego, CA.) LOL!!! :>)

Hi Delonix ...
Yes, Britain is not used to dry weather in springtime !
7 to 9 months would be a very long dry spell ....

9 May, 2011

 

Terratoonie:

I'm sure if it didn't rain for 7 - 9 months in Britain; you would probably think you were living in the Sahara Desert. lol! :>)

9 May, 2011

 

Lol... some parts of the UK, such as East Anglia, still need much more rain...

9 May, 2011

 

Terratoonie:

Hope you all receive good rains soon! :>)

Delonix1, you had your share this Winter though. Was in Palm Springs 4 - 3 months & the rain kept going your way. Love your city.

10 May, 2011

 

More rain for my gardens ..... please :o)

10 May, 2011

 

The rain we had was insignificant because we are on sandy soil and even though it has been well manured over the years it drajns through very quickly.In a perfect world it would rain overnight and be dry in the day for gardening.

10 May, 2011

 

Yes ... the gardens are used to lots more rain at this time of year ... regular overnight showers would help a lot !

10 May, 2011

 

Adoons:

Yes, we finally had some really good rains this year. It broke our 7 year drought.

11 May, 2011

 

I had to water my pots and new plantings again last night, we could do with lots more....but not at the weekends please.
This is a beautiful photo TT :o)))

11 May, 2011

 

Hi Annella ... Thanks ...
Yes the pots and new plantings need special attention with water ...

The weather forecasters keep talking of showers ...
... and they show maps and charts of skies with raindrops

... but not much sign of rain this week yet....

11 May, 2011

 

What does LOL stand for cheers

12 May, 2011

 

Hello Oldcrock...
LOL means Lots of Laughter....

... or.... Laugh out Loud ...

Sometimes people think it means Lots of Love...
... but that's not usually the meaning when used on GoY ! :o)

12 May, 2011

 

to much here but glad you finally got some Terra
