Or four and a half inches of rain depending on your preference. My titles seldom make any sense. I write almost every day and never get around to putting thought into my titles.
There are still clouds and the odd stray shower hanging about but I think we might begin to dry up a bit today. I hope so. We need to mow and garden today. I will start the day grubbing the thistles you saw in yesterdays pictures.
The wetness brings its own challenges but the pigs are happy about it.
And the pig pastures are growing madly.
“Tima!! Ask your Mum to let you come out to play! We’re playing hide and seek. Come out the mud is FINE!”.
Ears is already hiding. At least she THINKS she is hidden as she cannot see out.
Speaking of nails there are a lot of nails and screws being driven into the corrugated iron I am having my builders cover the porch walls with. This job has been a long time coming. At last it is almost finished. I love it. I have a real affinity for corrugated iron. And these walls were like colanders in the wind so the cladding will help.
Only a few more sheets of metal to put up today and all three porches are finished. Just a little painting to go.
By late yesterday morning we had four and a half inches of rain. I think that is enough. We got off lightly. Many areas had a lot, lot more.
We have guests coming today. So, home-made pizza’s for dinner. And some sitting in/on the porches.
I hope you all have a lovely day.
