I have never seen so many people smiling because it rained. Big happy faces.
I was particularly pleased because it meant I didn’t have to water the garden although I did give the pear tree a little top up. The pear tree is my special garden project and I am determined that we will get fruit from it this year. Last year all the little pearlets dropped off which was very disappointing so this year I am watering it, talking to it, shooing away birds and squirrels, all in absolute determination that the Beloved will get to eat at least one pear from the garden (personally can’t stand the things!).
