Rain Rain go away ... don't bother coming back another day

The lottie is miserable, bedraggled and waterlogged. Ironically allotment holders in Sheffield received a letter this week from our new allotment officer reminding us to use water in a responsible manner. It's raining again as I type this post. Ohhhhh the irony.

My god-daughter & her sister came to stay with us recently - and a quick trip to the water the greenhouse was the perfect opportunity to try out my lovely yellow wellies - their maiden voyage was very satisfactory :)

With not much happening at the lottie, despite it being the height of summer, we headed out to Tropical World in Roundhey Park, Leeds for the day. The walled garden is stunning and we discovered where the bees have all been hiding !
