Its an ill wind. .. Delightful photo too.What brought the plums down?
It's been almost three months without rain, Sue. So the fruit trees are getting rid of most of their load.
Ouch. I am all too familiar with drought. Deadly. For so many things.
All trotters in the trough, as we like to say. What a feast!
Yep. I am glad that Seanhenge has become a Bee Dorado.
It's hard to know what's worse, not enough rain or too much.
True, one has just to look at Pakistan these days.
We saw the devastation due to lack of rain on our recent holiday in the south of England. Everywhere was parched and trees had gone into survival mode. On one occasion there was a sudden heavy downpour. It caused flash flooding because the ground was to dry to absorb the water.
It's almost everywhere about the same in Europe: Italy, France, Spain, Portugal. And it is to be feared that this is only a beginning ...
Didn't realise things were so bad in Germany, here in Lincoln (Conningsby to be precise) we hit 104°! It was unbearable.
Ah, 'so bad things' are not in Germany, Mark. Rather we got a small foretaste of the future. And yesterday and today we got, after all, nice little soft rain. P.S: Having asked you several times for your e-mail address, tonight I ask you to send me an e-mail. ;-)
