I woke up at 5am this morning with the rain lashing off the window and thought " Oh Joy Oh Joy tis rain again ! " I rushed down the stairs , flung open the kitchen door and ran joyfully into the garden in my Pjs to sway and dance in the gale with the flowers , the rain drops sparkling off their little leaves like glitter ……………………………….YEP folks ive lost it ,totally lost it , this awful weather is just too too much for me , im off to hibernate , some-one give me a shout if the summer decides to return plz

LOL Did you enjoy your dance Weemamabell ?
Well this year and last are the worst summers I can remember. It rained here again yesterday but it was drizzle for a change. lol
I wonder what sort of rain we'll have today ? Some that doesn't come down I'd like. lol

You be careful - can't have you down with pneumonia just as the sun decides to make an appearance! Hope it's better weather today for you.

Glad you enjoyed your early morning dance, think we all had a good day on sunday, but normal services have resumed again, thinking of covering my garden furniture up, as it seems to get more bad weather on them in summer than they do in winter.

I know that people were saying they took a walk around their garden first thing but that sounds like a very invigorating (cold!!?) start to the day Weemama :o)

I hope the weather gets better for you soon.

Well, you did! But perhaps you should have just gone outside and done some gardening in the rain. Once wet, you cannot get any wetter. Weeding or cutting flowers or even raking leaves, it can all be done in the rain. Unless of course your rain is freezing. If you want to hibernate, take your laptop with you, at least you stay in touch with GOY.

Oh No, Weemamma! I've just finished another evening of bloody watering! And you're not far from me (only 45 miles). Please blow some my way! My problem is beating sunshine with a constant drying strong breeze. I can't water at all during the day, for the sun and wind would scorch everything! It has rained overnight some nights, but not enough (is anyone truly happy with their weather "lot", I wonder).

No, David, think not! Perfection is what we want....yes, perfection! :) lol. Today in Michigan (USA) we are to be in the low 90's with "gobs" of humidity, my least favorite of all weather. Can't even get out in the garden to do a thing, within 15 mins. look like someone took the hose to me and am truly miserable. So.....I wait for a cooler (or at least less humid) day. But, alas, the weeds are just that much worse from lack of daily "purging"...what's a gardener to do????

Perfection, 1198? Lol, indeed! How's about just being able to get out there and enjoy? Now, if we could swap your temps and humidity with my drying winds, what could we achieve? I'm in danger of acquiring Dupuytren's contracture or carpal Tunnel Syndrome from the constant misting in the greenhouse, as well as other damage from being blown over by the wind en route to and from the greenhouse. Could I offer you a cooling breeze and lower temp in xchange? :-) Best of Luck!
