I must admit, the sun shining today made it a lovely morning start for us, now , on wednesdays we venture forth to a few gardening jobs we do for the nearby elderley ladies, they are customers of my wifes in her part time job and asked if she knew anyone that could help them in their gardens, of course she did, me..
Annie comes along to help as working in a supermarket during the day she doesn’t see the sun all that much, so she comes to be out in the fresh air and chat to the ladies, and boy can they chat, they can chat for england, so can annie when she starts. Well today she had baked a lemon drizzle cake and decided to share some with them, i must admit it was a lovely cake.
About Midday the sky went dark and the wind increased and we were half way through cutting down some old lavender plants when the skies opened, the rain was horizontal but the sun came out during this rain, how weird was that, we got absolutely soaked through. We finished up and said our goodbyes, jumped in the car and drove for about 1 minute where the road was bone dry and the sun was bright and very warm and not even a damp patch to be seen.
We visited a local garden centre on our way home, on looking round the tables for soft fruit, the heavens opened again, by this time we were still wet from the first bout so we jumped in the car and headed home, truely a mixed bag of local weather today..
