Well the start of another summer weekend with weather warnings in place. This has got to be the wettest drought we have ever had! At the beginning of the spring we were told in Lincolnshire that a hosepipe ban was now in place…and then the heavens opened. This has now been lifted, mainly because the banks were bursting, the fire brigade were pumping the water into the sea to alleviate the stress on the rivers and pictures on the TV showing people rowing to school etc. Marvellous!!
It does look sad doesn't it? I think it needs an injection of shabby chic. The wooden staging painted white, colourful pots filled with bright and interesting coloured plants. White wooden boxes full of salad leaves. A white wicker chair where I can create some colourful hooky cushions to soften everything. And of course, white, pink and green floral bunting hanging above to add colour to a grey(?) sky.
I will probably be catching up with my Dad too and his photos of the Olympic torch relay that went through the villages of Spalding, Whaplode and Holbeach near to my own village. I was working at that time and luckily dodged the road closures the night before when they were coming to Peterborough where I work.
Well the sun has come out at last after a full day of rain...
A beautiful double rainbow!
