The rain finally came on 28/29 July!

Just thought I’d let you know! (see last post)  Approx 9 weeks without any real rain – just a few bits of drizzle once in a while.

Oddly enough – it feels more like September than the first of August – some of the leaves on the trees have changed into Autumn colours and have dropped and littered the lane, and its too late for me to replant the garden where there are gaps from the plants that couldn’t cope.

Farmers are using up the feed they would normally store until winter, as many fields turned yellow – and some of them are warning they may have to slaughter some of their cattle as there is not enough food for them.   I wonder what other consequences there will be of the drought?
