Rain Rain Go Away


Come again another day.
Little Johnny wants to play;
Rain, rain, go to Spain,
Never show your face again!
Rain, rain, go away,
Come again some other day,
We want to go outside and play,
Come again some other day
We've had over 2 inches of rain in just over two days - in May for goodness sake!
Apologies to all of you in Australia and elsewhere who have been enduring droughts for years but this combined with Gordon Brown really hacks me off. Just when I was about to refurb the rockery. Still, the blackbirds and robins have taken advantage of the worms etc being forced to the surface and I've put extra seed out for the sparrows, tits and finches. The frogs like the rain, of course, because the temperature is around 20 degrees C.
Notice the blue barrels for storing rain off the shed roof; haven't they been useful?

I'm glad for all this rain; it's been, like, three weeks of dryness. The garden needed it.
Mind you, I'm in the Vale of York, and the soil isn't clay like in the West Midlands. The water doesn't just sit there when it arrives.
