April showers

The view through the window has been looking like this for most of the last week. April is renowned for showery weather but this year the rain seems a constant feature.
After two years with less than average rainfall, there is officially a drought in this area and even though the recent rain feels like a lot, apparently we need very much more to restore water levels.

There was plenty of water in my garden

so I don't think we will be too bothered by the hose-pipe ban for a while.

Heres hoping for a break in the weather this weekend.

I can imagine you're ready for a little sunshine but hopefully the rain will continue to keep off any potential drought! Thanks for your supportive comment--it doesn't surprise me that people have been able to read through the lines but in a weird sense, it's almost even more reassuring. Your comments meant a lot to me though---so thank you! Hope you have been well!
