After a very dry and warm winter, and early spring, we have gone through a month of May filled wall-to-wall with rain and more rain. According to the forecast, there is no end in sight, either.
I have a horrible feeling that this will be a repeat of last year’s summer which was a complete wash-out. Yesterday, for example, we had a torrential downpour. (very much like last year), which caused run-off from the road to raise against the foundations of my home. Scary situation, I tell you. Today, upon inspection of the garden, I have already noticed many things rotting away. Other things broken by the torrent. And an infestation of slugs, the like of which I have NEVER seen before.
