The garden has turned green again. All the flower beds look muddy rather than sandy. The pavements were filthy and made a mess of my shoes.
I walked along without taking either of my two umbrellas out of my rucksack because I just loved the feeling of rain drops landing on my skin.
They say it was no way near enough rain. They say we will need lots of heavy rain for weeks if not months to restore the reservoirs. But it was very nice to see some rain at last. I had forgotten what rain looked like….and what it can do to pretty shoes. That will teach me. Time for the boots again.
