I think this is what the weather forcasters call "the wrong sort of rain!!" Still on a hosepipe ban but floods everywhere around us,bizarre!! Oh and I don't think it has stopped raining since they introduced the ban!! Still, runner beans are doing well.

The hosepipe ban is unimportant and will continue to be so, for as long as it keeps raining. Then we can see how far the reservoirs have refilled. How's The Drought Going? Water-004
Meanwhile, autumn seems to have come early this year and I've turned the central heating back on. How's The Drought Going? Coldsmiley2

The bad thing is that it is causing the abandmont of shows.

Himley Hall a few weeks ago, then last weekend a show that my mini friends go to at Pewsey down by Marlborough was cancelled Fri afternoon.

Good job we're going to the N Wales coast this year.
Fingers crossed for the rest of the year

We weren't on a hosepipe ban. Severn Trent expected rain, so didn't bring one in. The last one they imposed was back in 1995. Cool

Maybe they should start doing the Weather Forecast! Laughing
