Rain stopped play

Saturday 28th June
Rising at 7-30am for Rington's tea drinking, Herald cryptic crosswording and attending to feline needs and desires. It's a dark and cloudy morning that greets me.....

Hey who's this?..................

.........is it trick or treat already?
This mornings task is to get as much of the grass mown as possible before the rain hits us.
I reckoned on starting around 10-00am.......................

.....but one look at the radar and I decide to start right away.
My timing is perfect. I finish mowing around the house at 10-05am. The rain hits at 10-06am.....
...and looks as if it's here for a while.

Well, the car needed a wash.................

..and our colours too.
So, what else can a happy gardener do in such inclement weather?

Eat breakfast....................

....and read instructions for new office toy......................

.....purchased to replace old office printer, which was picked up at a garage sale for $5.
Meanwhile I collect rainwater.....

....for watering the indoor plants. And the frog/toad pools.......

.......get replenished too.
Wilson overviews the proceedings.....................

......from the shelter of the patio.

3-15pm and the rain has stopped.
Time to go play in the garden.

Hi dp
We have had far too much :-(
Maybe I'll send you a truck load over to TN eh?
All my friends down the southern part of Oklahoma are complaining about the lack of rain too. Here we just keep treading water.

Thanks for dropping by.
