What a storm
Last night the heavens opened with an almighty bang and some very dramatic flashes of lightning. The rain poured and it poured and it poured. I bet it did some damage to gardens in my local area but the grass verges will have really enjoyed a good drink and should hopefully start to green back up in a day or two. We have some beautiful hostas in the garden and they too look as though they really had a lovely drink. It is amazing the difference a drop of rainwater on the garden does in comparison with tap water. I just checked on the two avocado which are sitting in pots in The garden... They look really healthy and I am sure they have grown since yesterday. Pruning them back was a good move as they are starting to bush out nicely.
