Summer is Here

There is a saying here - "It never rains but it pours". Well, unusally for Ireland, it hasn't rained more than a couple of light dampenings for 3 or 4 weeks now and the garden is showing the signs. We ran out of our saved rain water some time ago and are trying to conserve the water from our well by using "brown water" - that is already used water - for essential garden watering. All this means that our guests have been able to enjoy unprecedented good weather for their holidays. Thus another saying - "Every cloud has a silver lining" :).
