Well, the weather has improved a little bit and now I might be able to retrieve my wellie boots which, over the Easter period, got stuck in my allotment when my hens were flooded.

DID YOU KNOW ? By 2006 the UK Water Industry had 1,584 boreholes, 666 reservoirs and 602 river abstractions. Two thirds of our water comes from surface water and one third from groundwater.

Ralph Walso Emerson (1803-1882) said “The good rain, like the bad preacher, does not know when to leave off.”

Happy Gardening Eileen
