On the left are our super attractive rain-barrels which are located at the back of the garden. They collect minimal rain themselves, so we pump the water from the rain barrel under the roof (below). Needless to say, right now all of the barrels are full.
I can’t remember if I mentioned this before, but I am a “bus talker”. A few weeks ago I ended up having a conversation with an elderly Asian man about the weather and he assured me that it would be a “very hot summer!” I keep hoping he is right!
